Homemade mostly organic chicken tenders

I fell into a little rut of buying frozen organic chicken tenders for Emmet.  They made mealtimes SO MUCH easier when we were having something E could not partake in or when I was short on time.  But I don’t want to feed him something frozen from a box on a regular basis so I came up with my own recipe.

  • 1 organic chicken breast
  • 1 organic egg
  • bread crumbs
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
What to do:
1.  Preheat the oven to 350
2.  Use a fork to whip your egg as if you’re making scrambled eggs
3.  Slice the chicken breast the short way into 1/2″ strips and season with salt & pepper
4.  Dip each strip first in the egg, then in the bread crumbs
(I find that using one hand to put into & remove from the egg and the other hand to work the breadcrumbs works best.)
5.  Using a basting brush, baste each strip with olive oil
6.  Pop them into the oven for 5 minutes, flip them over & cook for 3-4 more minutes
I find you can reheat them in an oven safe container (I use glass) for 5 minutes on 350 and they still taste delicious.

  1. I love homemade chicken fingers. Have you ever tried using panko instead of bread crumbs? They stay crispy longer and contain less salt and calories!
