Ingredients
  • 8-10 chicken tenders
  • 1 c. butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 c. Panko bread crumbs
  • ½ c. Parmesan cheese
  • 1½ c. cheddar cheese
  • ½ tsp. dried parsley
  • ½ tsp. dried oregano
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt butter and then add minced garlic. Allow garlic to cook in the butter for a few minutes, and while that’s happening, toss together the bread crumbs, cheeses, parsley and oregano, and salt and pepper in a shallow dish. Remove the butter from the heat.
  3. Working one chicken tender at a time, dip both sides in the garlic butter and and then dredge in the cheese and bread crumb mixture, making sure the whole tender is coated. Put breaded chicken tenders in a greased 9 x 13 dish. Sprinkle the tenders with any remaining bread crumb mixture and drizzle with the leftover butter. Bake for 8-12 minutes, until chicken cooked through.
  4. Serve warm with ranch dressing or marinara for dipping.
  5. Serve with salad or roast veggies
