This oven-frying method delivers a crispy coating without deep-frying. Don't be tempted to skip any steps if you want a golden, crunchy chicken tender.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450°.

Step 2

Combine panko, pepper, and salt in a shallow dish. Pour buttermilk into another shallow dish.

Step 3

Dip chicken in buttermilk; dredge in panko mixture, pressing firmly to coat. Shake off excess panko mixture. Place chicken on a wire rack; let stand 10 minutes. While chicken stands, place a jelly-roll pan in oven to heat.

Step 4

Coat chicken well with cooking spray. Remove hot pan from oven; coat with cooking spray. Arrange chicken in a single layer on pan. Bake at 450° for 23 minutes or until chicken is lightly browned. Serve with Cajun-Creole Dipping Sauce.
