Baked Chicken Fries
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!
