Recipe of the Week: Baked Sesame Chicken Tenders
What happens when you crave some deep fried chicken but want to stick to your new year's resolutions? I think I have a satisfying answer (that also includes a quick and easy preparation) ...
Baked sesame chicken tenders! So good we ate it without any dipping sauces, and only with a side of steamed broccoli.
Here's the recipe:
1lb chicken tenders
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp low sodium soy sauce
6 tbsp toasted sesame seeds
4 tbsp panko
olive oil spray
Preheat oven to 425F. Spray a baking sheet with non-stick oil spray.
Combine egg, sesame oil, and soy sauce in a bowl; sesame seeds and panko in another.
Dip chicken tenders in sauce mixture and then coat with sesame seed and panko mixture.
Line chicken tenders on baking sheet and lightly spray the top of the chicken with a little more olive oil spray.
Bake 8-10 minutes. Turn chicken over and cook another 4-5 minutes longer.
