I’ve been making my own chicken tenders for a long time, so once I went gluten-free, it didn’t take long for me to come up with an easy recipe to replace my old breadcrumbs. For these Gluten-Free Chicken Tenders, I slice boneless chicken breasts into strips and dredge them in Corn Chex and Parmesan Cheese–a great combo of flavor and texture. By baking, you get the flavor of olive oil without deep-frying them, healthier by far. Make plenty, because the extras taste great cold for lunch the next day.
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup Corn Chex, crushed
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Heat oven to 450 degrees. Use two bowls for dredging the chicken; one with olive oil, and one with the other three ingredients mixed together. Dip the chicken in the olive oil, then roll in the Chex mixture. I usually use a spoon to press the mixture onto the chicken to coat it completely. Lay covered pieces on a baking sheet. Bake chicken for 12-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken breasts (be sure they’re cooked through).
I like to serve these with sweet potato fries, salad and corn on the cob. Yum!
