Crispy chicken tenders

A crispy chicken recipe which is full of flavour.


  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 4 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 900g skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into strips (3-4 strips per breast)
  • 60g butter


Preheat the oven to 210 C. Place a roasting pan or baking tray in the oven to heat up.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg and the milk.
In a separate bowl, mix the flour, breadcrumbs, baking powder and seasoning together.
Dip the chicken pieces in the flour, coating evenly and shaking off any extra flour.
Next, coat the chicken pieces in the egg mixtures. Then, dip them into the flour again, this time coating very well.
Take the baking tray out of the oven and melt the butter on it. Place the coated chicken pieces on the tray.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, carefully flip and bake for another 5-10 minutes (depending on how thick your chicken pieces are). Finish by broiling the chicken until it turns golden brown and crispy.
Serve with sweet potato fries and chilli sauce.
