Italian Chicken Tenders

These were AWESOME and incredibly EASY. My 10 year old helped me to make these, and he happily took leftovers for lunch several times last week.  For leftovers, put a bit of tomato sauce over the top, sprinkle with mozzarella cheese, and cook for 15 minutes in a 350-degree oven. It’s chicken parm when you’re done!



  • 2 lbs chicken tenders
  • 1-2 eggs, beaten
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp Cooking oil (I use lard, ghee, or avocado oil)

Preheat oil a nonstick skillet or cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Combine cheese and seasonings ina bowl. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Dip in egg, and then in the cheese mixture. In batches, cook the chicken in the skillet for 3-4 minutes on each side (depending on thickness). Do NOT move the chicken before it is time to flip. Remove to paper towels. Repeat process with remaining chicken. Enjoy!
