Homemade Chicken Tenders

I have always loved chicken tenders, but then, who doesn’t love chicken tenders?  So of course I was excited when I found this recipe from Cooking by Moonlight.  These are easy to make, and they are quite tasty!


1 lb chicken breasts cut into strips
1/4 cup flour
1/4 t. pepper
1/4 t. salt
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 t. garlic powder
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 t. hot sauce
3/4 cup breadcrumbs
canola oil cooking spray
  1. Wash the chicken and trim away any excess fat.
  2. Mix flour, salt, pepper, cayenne, and garlic powder on a plate or in a bowl.  Pour the breadcrumbs onto a large plate.
  3. Beat the egg along with the milk and hot sauce in a bowl.
  4. Place a large pan over medium high heat.
  5. Dip the chicken strips into the flour, then the liquid, then the breadcrumbs.  Be sure the strips are completely coated with each before moving onto the next step.
  6. Thoroughly spray each strip with the olive oil until well coated and place in the heated pan for 3-4 minutes per side or until cooked through.
