Crispy Oven Baked Chicken
- 2 pounds chicken tenders, skinless and deboned
- 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice, divided
- ½ cup light mayonnaise
- 1 cup Japanese breadcrumbs (panko)
- 1 cup saltine crackers, crushed (should have the same texture as the breadcrumbs)
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
- Lightly score chicken tenders with a sharp knife. Drizzle with about 2 tablespoons lemon juice. Set aside for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 350°f. Line a rimmed baking pan with foil. Brush foil with melted butter or coat with vegetable spray. Set aside.
- Whisk together mayonnaise and remaining fresh lemon juice in a bowl.
- In other bowl, whisk together breadcrumbs, cracker crumbs, salt, ground black pepper and Parmesan cheese.
- Dip a piece of chicken in the mayonnaise mixture. Brush off any excess. Dredge in breadcrumb-cracker mixture, until completely covered. Place into the prepared pan. Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until tenders are done and juices run clear. Using a pair of tongs, transfer baked chicken tenders onto individual plates. Drizzle with addition fresh lemon juice, if desired. Serve while still hot.
- Makes 6 to 8 servings.
- This recipe can be served with a salad, buttered vegetables or marinated mushrooms.
