Chicken you can eat with your hands? A win for kids and adults. Chicken you can eat with your hands that is made with only 5 additional ingredients? Well, that’s a win for mom. Or whoever does the cooking. Probably you, the one reading this food blog. But that’s just a wild guess.

If you like chicken Caesar salads, you’ll love this recipe for chicken tenders. It’s chicken Caesar that you can eat with your hands and it’s unbelievably simple to make. I used Caesar dressing and Caesar croutons to really drive home the flavor of a Caesar salad without making the recipe too difficult or labor-intensive.  Then I tossed in some Panko breadcrumbs to make them extra crispy (while still being baked and not fried). And don’t worry — I didn’t forget the Parmesan cheese.

And hey, even if you don’t like Caesar salads, you’ll probably still like this recipe. Just ask my husband! He is absolutely not a fan of Caesar salad but I risked making this recipe anyway. It got the seal of approval and even the “I could eat this every night!”

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds Just BARE boneless skinless chicken breasts (family pack)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup prepared Caesar dressing, plus extra for serving
  • 2 cups Caesar seasoned croutons, crushed in a blender or food processor
  • 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut chicken breast into tender-sized strips but cutting down the long side of the breast (try to make them equal for even cooking). It should come out to about 4 tenders per chicken breast.
  2. Place flour in one shallow bowl, dressing in another shallow bowl, and mix together crushed croutons, panko breadcrumbs and cheese in a third shallow bowl.
  3. Take one tender, dip it in flour and shake the excess off. Then dip it the dressing and use your fingers to brush off any excess so there is only a thin layer (otherwise they’ll get soggy even after baking). Then, dip in the crouton/Panko/cheese mixture so that the tender is evenly coated. Place on baking sheet lined with a Silpat baking sheet or parchment paper. Continue this breading process until all tenders are breaded and on the baking tray.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

Serving suggestions: -On their own, dipped in Caesar dressing -In a wrap with extra Parmesan, Caesar dressing and lots of romaine lettuce -On top of a salad: Lots of romaine, croutons, cheese and dressed with Caesar dressing
