Homemade easy baked chicken tenders that are perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside! Plus, these you can freeze!

How to Make Chicken Tenders

Chicken tenders are one of the most popular food items in America -and they are not just for kids, adults love them too! If you want to see how to make chicken tenders at home without frying, check out this video.

My tender-loving family loves this recipe because the crust is everything you’d want on a chicken tender without frying, which means that now you don’t have to go out to eat to enjoy these!

This homemade recipe for chicken tenders is the perfect alternative to the frozen, pre-packaged tenders. They are made with real, unprocessed chicken, and you’ll have minimal cleanup because they are baked, not fried.

And thanks to the use of Panko breadcrumbs they are perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. What’s not to love?

But it gets better; these homemade chicken tenders can be frozen before cooking by placing them on a parchment-lined tray, feezing them, and then transferring them to a freezer-safe bag. Make sure to label the zip bag with the oven temperature and time (add about 2-3 minutes to cooking time if cooking them frozen) and you now have a recipe that yields leftovers for another meal.

It’s convenient, family-favorite recipes like this one that our Classic Meal Plan Members love. We make sure to include kid-friendly favorites like this recipe in the plans, plus prep-ahead directions, and storage notes.
