Super crispy baked chicken strips

Super crispy baked chicken strips

Based on 29 ratings

"Growing up, chicken tenders (which we called chicken strips) were on the menu in the school cafeteria just about every week. Served with instant mashed potatoes, some canned veg (think green beans or corn), and a squirt of honey mustard or barbecue sauce, chicken strips were the one lunch I sort of looked forward to. It’s not because they were excellent—by no means were they—it’s because they were better than most of the other school lunches. These super crispy baked chicken tenders are my homage to that lunch, but don’t get me wrong—the only thing they have in common is the name. Use real chicken tenders if you’d like, but chicken breasts cut into strips work just as well. You can also make these into nuggets instead of tenders by cutting the chicken breasts into large pieces and adjusting the baking time as needed."
