Makes: 6-8 Tenders and enough fries for 4
Prep: 15 min
Cook Time: 45 min
- 2 Chicken breasts, sliced long ways into 3-4 slices per breast
- 1 C. Panko bread crumbs, or regular breadcrumbs
- 2 TBS flour
- 1 Egg, beaten
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Pam spray
- 1 Large sweet potato, sliced into fries
- 1 TBS olive oil or canola oil for fries, or you can use the Pam you used for the tenders.
- Salt and pepper to taste for fries, you can also do a pinch or dry herbs if you would like but it’s not mandatory 🙂
- Ranch or Ketchup to dip tenders in if desired
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees
- Cut up fries, drizzle with oil and bake for 40 min or until done to your liking.
- Gather 3 bowls (one for flour, one for egg, and one for panko or breadcrumbs) place each ingredient into a separate bowl in that order put the salt and pepper into the flour and mix well.
- Cut up chicken in strips 3-4 per breast, longways
- Take one tender at a time and dredge in flour, then egg, than panko or breadcrumb, repeat until done with all the tenders. (This is the fun part for kids).
- For a crispy brown texture, heat large skillet on med high and spray pan and tenders on each side with pam and cook for 3 min on each side. Then transfer to a baking dish and cook for 20 min or until done.
- If you don’t want to put on the skillet first you can just spray with Pam and then Bake for 25-30 min.
Serve with your choice of dipping sauce!
