As I have said before, I am always looking for different ways to bake chicken tenders. Earlier this week I saw a recipe from "Mommy? I'm Hungry!" that she had adapted from Bisquick. I decided to give them a try.

I use Jiffy All-Purpose Baking Mix so I decided to change the name from her Ultimate Chicken Tenders.  I also changed the temperature and length of cooking time.  450 degrees seemed too hot for me.


1/4     cup + 2  tablespoon Jiffy baking mix
1/4     cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2     teaspoon paprika
1/4     teaspoon salt
1/4     teaspoon garlic powder
1       large egg

 6 - 8 chicken tenders

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit a cookie sheet.

Mix the dry ingredients in a small bowl with a whisk. Pour into a shallow pan (i.e. pie plate) 

Beat the egg and place in a narrow shallow bowl.  

Arrange your work area with the chicken, the dry mix, the beaten egg, and the prepared cookie sheet. (cookie sheet didn't make the picture)

Dip the tender in the egg

The dredge the tender in the dry mixture

covering both sides.

Spread the tenders evenly on the cookie sheet.

Spray the top side with cooking spray. Very important step!

Turn them over and spray the other side. Again, very important!

Bake 9 minutes in the oven...

and then turn them (the first two have been turned over)

Return to the oven and cook 9 more minutes.

Remove and serve.

Why do I love cooking with parchment paper? EASY CLEANUP


  1. Looks delicious, thanks for sharing! I should try baking them, I just LOVE frying them though...

    1. I know what you mean Gloria, but the recipes I have found for baking and featured on my blog are really good. My husband really likes the All - American "Fried" ones the best. I made them again night before last. I made some similar to these but didn't spray them with the cooking spray and they were terrible. The "batter" was powdery.

  2. p.s. I, too, love parchment paper! :)

  3. These were good! Thank you for posting the recipe! I'll make these again but may use some Cheddar in place of all of the Parmesan.

    1. I think that sounds like a good idea. I will have to try that myself next time. Thanks for the suggestion.

  4. Made some tonight used some milk water and oil mix. Thank you

    1. Did you use the milk water and oil mix in place of the egg? That would certainly work. Glad you enjoyed them.
