Oven Baked Chicken Tenders


  • Chicken Breast Strips
  • 1-1/2 Cup Mayonnaise (use a good quality, full fat mayonnaise that is made with eggs)
  • Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Mustard Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspooon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Chipotle Pepper Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Chili Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Corn Starch
  • 2 Cups Panko Bread Crumbs (I used organic bread Panko bread crumbs)


  1. You are going to need two large bowls or containers.  One for the wet ingredients, and one for the dry ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

  3. In the first bowl, stir together the mayonnaise and the egg.  Mix in the spices.  Then, stir in the corn starch.  This will add the stickiness we need to keep the bread crumbs on.

  4. In the second bowl, add your Panko bread crumbs.  I like the Panko bread crumbs because they add an extra crunchy texture to your chicken tenders.

  5. Slather your chicken tenders with the mayonnaise mixture.

  6. Drag your chicken into the crunch Panko bread crumbs.

  7. Put your chicken strips on a non-stick rack on a baking sheet, or a baking sheet lined with non-stick foil.

  8. Bake in a preheated oven for about 25 to 30 minutes.
