Baked Chicken Tenders & Avocado Dip

You know I can't go a full week without sharing at least one recipe. I always post something food related when I'm hungry, and I'm pretty hungry right now. The recipe I'm sharing with you today is probably one of my very favorites. I love chicken tenders! Especially when they're homemade. I also love avocados! We are going to combine both of my loves in one simple, yet amazingly tasty recipe from Kim's Healthy Eats. Bon appetit!

Baked Chicken Tenders & Avocado Dipping Sauce


Chicken Tenders-

  • 1 lb. chicken tenders or boneless chicken breast (cut into tenders)

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 egg, beaten

  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Avocado Dipping Sauce-

  • 1 avocado, peeled and pitted

  • 1/2 lime, juiced

  • Salt to taste

  • 1 Tablespoon Greek yogurt or sour cream

  • 1/3-1/2 cup water


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Cover a baking sheet with parchment and set aside.

  • Put the flour in one bowl, the beaten egg in another bowl, and the panko bread crumbs in a third bowl. Add salt and pepper to the panko bowl.

  • Dry the chicken (this prevents the coating from slipping off) and dip in the flour until lightly coated. Then dip into the egg and finally, into the panko.

  • Place the chicken in a single layer on the baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chicken.

  • While the chicken is baking, place all the dip ingredients in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

  • Stream the water in until desired consistency is achieved. Enjoy!

I like to experiment with spices in the breading for chicken tenders. I recommend that you try different combinations in the panko bread crumbs (thyme, smoked salt, paprika, etc.). If you don't like avocado, here is a great honey mustard recipe that you can make instead.

Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 1/4 cup mustard (I prefer Dijon)

  • 4-6 Tablespoons honey, depending on desired sweetness

  • 1/2 Tablespoon rice wine vinegar

  • Dash of salt

  • Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)


  • Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Add more honey and salt to achieve desired taste. Enjoy!

I hope you've enjoyed this recipe post. Now I need to go get some food ;)

Until next time,
