  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenders
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • olive oil
  1. In a small shallow bowl, whisk together the parmesan cheese and panko bread crumbs.
  2. In a separate shallow bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. In a third shallow bowl, whisk together the flour, cayenne (you can omit this if sensitive to spice), garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
  4. Dredge the chicken tenders first in the flour mixture, then the egg wash and finally the panko crumbs pressing gently to help the crumbs stick to the chicken.
  5. Arrange the chicken on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment and coated with cooking spray.
  6. Drizzle the chicken with a small amount of olive oil and bake in a 425 degree oven for 10 minutes. Flip the chicken over carefully with tongs or a spatula and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until golden brown and crispy.
  7. Transfer to a platter and serve immediately.
