Parmesan Crusted Chicken Tenders
Prep time

Total time
You can put a plate of freshly baked chicken tenders on the table in less time than you can cook frozen processed ones! These don't need a lot of oven time - and the Parmesan Panko crust on one side really gives the chicken texture while the Greek yogurt keeps it moist. A great dish!
  • 10 to 12 chicken tenderloins, about one pound
  • ½ cup Greek yogurt (the classic version uses Hellmann's mayonnaise)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup Progresso Italian flavored panko breadcrumbs (or regular if you can't find panko)
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Place the yogurt in a small bowl season with ½ teaspoon salt, a few grinds black pepper and the olive oil. Add the chicken tenders and using your fingertips, squish around in the yogurt to lightly coat. Combine the cheese and breadcrumbs in a shallow dish then lightly lay each chicken tender in the crumb mixture to coat one side. Place crumb side up on a baking sheet that has been coated with cooking spray. Bake for 8 minutes or until almost cooked through; turn on broiler and continue to cook 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown.
