Recipe Ingredients for Crunchy Chicken Tenders

1 1/2 lbs chicken breasts
1/4 cup Buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Pepper, freshly ground
1 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Oregano
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Chipotle or Chili Powder
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1 Olive Oil Spray

Recipe Directions for Crunchy Chicken Tenders

  1. Using a ziplock bag, mix buttermilk with a teaspoon each of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Add in chicken tenders, close bag, and turn to coat the chicken. Refrigerate at least 2 hours, up to 24 hours, turning every so often.

  2. In a shallow dish, mix bread crumbs, cornmeal, a teaspoon each of salt, garlic and onion powders, oregano, cumin, paprika, and chili powder, with a teaspoon pepper until combined.

  3. Preheat oven to 400⁰, and line a sheet pan with foil.

  5. Bake for 14 minutes, turning tenders over half way through.
