Ingredients

  • 1.5 lbs. chicken tenderloin, boneless, skinless
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ cup AP flour, all purpose
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon paprika

Honey Sriracha Sauce

  • ¼ cup honey
  • ¼ cup sriracha
  • ¼ cup salted butter , 4 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice, fresh squeezed

Equipment

  • baking tray
  • 3 plates

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  • Gently spray a baking tray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Grab three plates to begin setting up the breading station.
  • On the first plate, add the panko breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese. Toss together.
  • On the second plate, add 2 whisked eggs and the Dijon mustard. Using a fork, whisk the two together until they are well combined.
  • On the third plate, add the flour, paprika, salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Stir until well combined.

Begin breading the chicken

  • Take one tender, dredge it through the flour mixture; making sure it's well coated. Then, dredge it through the egg mixture and finally the breadcrumb mixture. Make sure that it is well coated during each step. Set the breaded chicken on the baking tray. Repeat until all tenders are breaded.
  • Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the tenders are cooked through. Make sure to flip them halfway.
  • Cooking time will depend on the size of the tenders. You'll want the internal temperature to reach 165 degrees Fahrenheit to ensure doneness.
  • While the chicken is baking, grab a small saucepan. Over medium heat combine the honey, sriracha, butter, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Stir until well combined.
  • Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the oven and toss it with the honey sriracha sauce. Serve warm.
