Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Tenders
Active time: 10 minutes | Total: 30 minutes
Canola or olive oil cooking spray
1/4 cup Hy-Vee all-purpose flour
2 large Hy-Vee eggs
1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
1 cup coarse dry breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat
1 pound Hy-Vee 100% natural fresh chicken tenders
1 tablespoon Hy-Vee Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon Hy-Vee garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup marinara sauce, heated
1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place a large wire rack on a baking sheet and coat with cooking spray.
2. Place flour in a shallow dish. Lightly beat eggs in another shallow dish. Combine Parmesan and breadcrumbs in a third shallow dish. Toss tenders with Italian seasoning, garlic powder and salt in a medium bowl. Coat each tender in flour, shaking off any excess. Dip in egg and let any excess drip off. Then roll in the breadcrumb mixture. Place the tenders on the prepared rack. Generously coat the top of each tender with cooking spray.
3. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn each tender over and coat with cooking spray. Continue baking until the outside is crisp and the tenders are cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Serve the tenders with marinara sauce for dipping.
