  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup white flour
  • cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoon bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2-3 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds chicken tenders
  • 1/3 cup butter


  • Preheat the oven to 410°F (210°C).
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and the buttermilk.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the flour, parmesan, breadcrumbs, baking powder and seasoning together.
  • Place a dark-colored roasting pan (a baking tray works as well) in the oven to heat up.
  • Dip the chicken pieces in the flour mix, coating evenly and shaking off any extra flour.
  • Next, coat the chicken pieces in the egg mixtures. Then, dip them into the flour again, this time coating very well.
  • Take the baking tray out of the oven and melt the butter on it. Place the coated chicken pieces on the tray.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, carefully flip and bake for another 5-10 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken pieces are). Finish by broiling the chicken until it turns golden brown and crispy.
