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!
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 lb chicken tenders
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.
