Love Chicken...Tenders!

Tim's grandson Paxton, LOVES chicken!!  Usually when he visits on a weeknight, we have some form of noodles, also a favorite of his.  When he stayed with us a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to make something besides noodles.  After reading a few recipes for Chicken Fingers, I came up with my own version.  Alongside these Mac & Cheese Cupcakes, a perfect kids meal!

Chicken Tenders
1/3 cup pancake batter
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 egg
1 lb chicken tenders
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450°F. Spray cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Mix together pancake mix, breadcrumbs, cheese,  garlic salt and oregano leaves. Pour on large plate.

In shallow dish, beat egg slightly. Dip the chicken tenders in egg and then dredge in bread crumb mixture.

Place chicken tenders on the cookie sheet.  Lightly spray chicken with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes.


  1. Looks like a delicious (and kid-friendly) meal!

  2. The pancake mix is different! Bet they got gobbled up:@)

  3. My kids would love it! Thanks for sharing it.


  4. They look great, my big kids would love them!

  5. This looks so delicious and a meal my son will appreciate. I've got everything need to make these for dinner this week and added them to my must make list. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  6. That's so funny because our grandsons both love mac n cheese and I made chicken tenders for them last Monday! I guess little kids taste buds are all quite similar :)
