Use turkey tenderloin for this easy and healthy variation on kid-frieindly chicken fingers. The panko breadcrumb coating adds crispiness and the Parmesan cheese add extra flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Cut tenderloin in half lengthwise; cut into 20 (2-inch) pieces.

Step 3

Place flour in a shallow dish. Place egg substitute in another. Combine panko, cheese, garlic salt, and pepper in another dish. Dredge turkey in flour; dip in egg substitute, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, swirling to coat. Add turkey pieces to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side. Place turkey pieces on a broiler pan. Bake at 425° for 5 minutes. Turn turkey pieces over, and bake an additional 5 minutes or until golden.

These were great as a picky food. More often than not I decide what I want to eat based on the utensil, or lack thereof, that I use. These were crunchy and not greasy, and the turkey was not as dry as I imagined chicken to be.

So good! And very easy. Used a chicken breast b/c no turkey was available, and used a regular egg mixed w/water. The outside was crisp and the chicken was moist. Will try w/turkey when I find some. And I made the sauce (ketchup/mayo and bit of honey), excellent! My 2 y.o. especially loved them.

These were SUPER yummy and SUPER easy. The breading is excellent - I used Italian seasoned panko but I'm sure it would be yummy with the regular kind. I was a little skeptical of the turkey, but couldn't really even tell a difference. Will definitely make again!

Very good! I just used a regular egg because I didn't have egg substitute. This is definitely going into the regular rotation. I intend to try it with chicken also!

I used chicken breasts pieces instead of turkey and Italian bread crumbs and it was delicious. I wish fast food places would take the hint and make tenders as juicy and healthy as these! Next time I'm going to cut the meat into smaller pieces to make them more bite size. Quick and easy!

Super easy & quick and very tasty. Coating was very crispy after cooking in skillet and then finishing in the oven. Will definitely be making again.
