I love having chicken tenders with mac n cheese. There's just something comforting about it. My favorite flavor is buffalo, like in these Buffalo Chicken Bites.
I also wanted to make a second flavor and used this recipe for Honey Mustard Chicken that I found in Joelen's blog.
Buffalo Chicken Tenders
- 2 chicken breasts, sliced into tenders
- 1/2 c Frank's Red Hot Buffalo Sauce
- 1/2 c Panko breadcrumbs
- 1/2 c regular breadcrumbs
- Spices: a few dashes each of cayenne, garlic powder, and chili powder
- Cooking spray
Mix the breadcrumbs and spices. Dip the chicken in the sauce and then coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake on 375 for 10-12 minutes, flipping once, and turning on the broiler at the end. Serve with blue cheese dipping sauce (I bought a jar of Marie's Light Blue Cheese Dressing).
Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders (inspired by Joelen, see link above for original recipe)
- 2 chicken breasts
- 2 tbsp coarse ground Dijon mustard
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 c Panko breadcrumbs mixed with 1/2 c regular breadcrumbs and a dash of garlic powder
Dip the chicken in the honey mustard mixture and then coat in the breadcrumb mixture. Place on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Bake on 375 for 10-12 minutes, flipping once, and turning on the broiler at the end.
Serve with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce.
The honey mustard chicken is on the left, buffalo on the right.
I love how the chicken really didn't even need a dipping sauce. All of the flavor was already in there. And can this get any easier? These would also make a great appetizer.
