Crispy Baked Chicken Tenders Recipe  Recipe

Our boys love chicken nuggets from fast food places, and I have that kid at heart that loves them too. Reading about all of the processed ingredients in chicken nuggets, I am afraid to buy them, not even from a grocery store. So the solution is to make it at home, making it very simple and timeless.

These chicken nuggets are flaky, moist, while crispy on the outside. They were a hit and kids loved these.

Tip: Let chicken marinade for at least 24 hours, it will turn out moist.

Instructions 

Cut chicken into small pieces, about one inch in width and three in length. Cut garlic into 1/2 pieces and onions into rings. Place chicken, onion, garlic, seasoning into a deep bowl, season with salt and mayonnaise.
Leave chicken marinating for at least two hours. I like to leave it marinating for a few days in refrigerator. Once the chicken is done marinating, remove extra mayonnaise, onion and garlic from the chicken.
Place the panko crumbs into a shallow dish, dipping each chicken piece into the crumbs.
Place chicken on a wire rack baking sheet. I don't have wire rack, so I had to turn the chicken as it was baking. Bake chicken at 400F for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve chicken with your favorite dinning sauce; we went with some organic ketchup.
