How to Make Crispy Chicken Tenders Without Milk

Save

Crispy chicken tenders make a satisfying meal or snack. Using fresh chicken on the inside and a crunchy coating on the outside, you can make your own crispy chicken tenders at home. You can even bake them instead of frying for a more healthful dish. But what if you or someone you're feeding can't have dairy products? While you could use a milk substitute, you can make crispy chicken tenders without using milk at all.

Things You'll Need

  • 1 pound chicken tenders (or skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into strips)
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-1/2 cups bread crumbs
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Seasonings (see Tips)

Prepare the Chicken Tenders

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Line a baking sheet with foil. Spread vegetable oil on the baking sheet.

  • Beat the eggs lightly in a bowl. Season if desired.

  • Put the bread crumbs on a plate or in a shallow bowl.

  • Lightly season the chicken pieces with salt and pepper.

  • Dip the chicken, three or four at a time, into the egg dip. Lift the pieces one at a time with a fork, allowing extra egg to drip off.

  • Coat the tenders with bread crumbs, using the forks to coat them and lift them onto the pan.

  • Bake the chicken tenders in the oven for 20 minutes, turning them over after ten minutes. Check to see if they are done after 15 minutes.

  • Cool slightly and enjoy.

Tips & Warnings

  • Season the egg dip with Dijon mustard, hot sauce, soy sauce, or garlic salt.
  • Season the bread crumbs with Parmesan cheese, ground almonds, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper, or other favorite herbs or spices.
  • Use panko or cracker crumbs instead of bread crumbs.
  • Thoroughly clean all utensils, cutting boards, knives, and dishes that come in contact with raw chicken or eggs to avoid contamination.
