Parmesan Chicken Tenders with Creamy Honey Dijon


These chicken tenders are super easy to make and were the perfect after work, after school but before sports dinner the other night. They come together really easily and you probably already have everything to make these in your kitchen right now.

I served these with a simple roasted veggie mix and the veggie pasta from Birdseye and dinner was on the table in about thirty minutes. This recipe is the essence of Good Better Best food.


For the chicken

Cooking spray

1/3 cup flour (I used gluten-free Trader Joe's all-purpose flour)

Salt and pepper

1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into 1/2 inch strips

1/3 cup of milk

1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese

1/2 cup quick cooking oats

1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

For the Creamy Honey Dijon

1/2 cup sour cream

3 teaspoons Dijon mustard

2 teaspoons honey

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. 

Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a shallow dish, combine flour and 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Add chicken to the flour mix and turn to coat.

Place milk in a separate shallow dish.

In a plastic bag, combine parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and oats.

After you dip the chicken in the flour mixture and turn to coat, add the chicken to the milk. Transfer chicken to the oat mixture. Shake chicken in the bag of the oat mixture to coat. Make sure the chicken is well coated.

Place chicken on the baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, turning at the halfway mark.  The chicken is fully cooked at 165 degrees internal temperature.

While the chicken cooks, you can make the dipping sauce.

Combine the sour cream, Dijon and honey. Feel free to add more Dijon if you like a little more kick.

To make Better add one element of organic, whole grain or garden/farmers market grown. To make Best add multiple elements of organic, whole grain or garden/farmers market grown. The oats can serve as a whole grain and organic milk is an easy one to add. We used the organic chicken tenders from Butcher Box and they were amazing.
