Ingredients

For Chicken Tenders

  • 2 lbs chicken tenders
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 TBSP milk I used skim
  • 2 cups corn flakes cereal
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 TBSP sweet paprika
  • 1 TBSP chicken stock base
  • 2 TBSPs grill seasoning see note
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil

For Dipping Sauce

  • 1/2 cup Yoplait nonfat yogurt
  • 1 1/2 TBSPs hot sauce
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a food processor, to make the breading mixture, combine the cereal, bread crumbs, paprika, chicken stock base, grill seasoning, and vegetable oil.
  • Pour the flour out onto a large plate. Whisk the eggs with the milk in a medium sized bowl and put it next to the flour. Finally pour the breading mixture on a large plate next to the eggs. Place a large baking sheet next to the breading mixture.
  • Season the chicken tenders lightly with salt and pepper and working in batches dip them in the flour, then the eggs, then the breading mixture and place them on the baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
  • While the chicken is baking, mix together the yogurt, hot sauce, garlic, salt, and Worcestershire sauce.

Notes

What type of grill seasoning you get greatly impacts the final taste of this recipe, so make sure you get one you like!
Please note that the nutritional information on these does not account for the dipping sauce and it does account for all of the breading, eggs, and flour, though you do not use all of it.
