Baked Chicken Fries

Print Recipe
These are a favorite in my house. Kids love them, adults adore them and they are healthier than traditional fried chicken tenders.

  • 6 chicken breast halves cut into 1/2 inch strips
  • 1 cup panko japanese breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pinches kosher salt for sprinkling


  • Preheat your oven to 400° and line a rimmed baking sheet.
  • In a food processor (I love my mini one!); combine the Panko breadcrumbs with the freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Pulse until the cheese and Panko are combined.
  • In a medium dish whisk together the egg, black pepper and buttermilk.
  • Working in batches, dunk the strips of chicken into the egg mixture and let any excess drip off.
  • Place the coated chicken into the breadcrumbs and coat generously, pressing the crumbs into the chicken.
  • Arrange on the prepared baking pan and slide them into the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes. They should come out golden and crispy.
  • Serve with homemade ranch or blue cheese dressing. Enjoy!
