What’s not to love about Chicken Tenders?
Typically reserved for those “ordering out” kind of meals, you will be amazing at just how easy it is to bring the restaurant home. Best part about it is that you can save all that deep frying (and splattering mess) because these are baked, making them a much healthier alternative.
Once you bite into these tender strips of crispy chicken, you will never believe it took you less than ten minutes of prep time.
I’ve owned my Black & Decker Toaster Oven for years, but I’ve finally decided to upgrade that work horse to a larger Toaster Oven. I love using it for quick meals when only a few of us are at home, and I’ve showed my own kids how to master this recipe in minutes – just using the toaster oven.
Simple Tips: With any easy recipe, feel free to mix it up with varying spices. I went very simple with this, but feel free to add in some garlic salt or other favorite seasonings. Once you’ve mastered this base recipe, start experimenting by adding a dash of honey or soy sauce to the mayo mixture. Also, this is a perfect time to use up those cracker packs that have been opened and are beginning to go stale. I mixed three opened packs of varying crackers to create the topping. I avoided food waste and changed up the taste and texture just a bit for a new variety. They crisp up perfectly in the oven.
