  • 2 lbs chicken tenders
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese grated
  • 2 tablespoons parsley minced
  • 1 tablespoon oregano dried
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper fresh ground
  • 1/2 cup butter


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line large rimmed sheet pan with aluminum foil, place a cooling rack in the pan.
  • Combine all dry ingredients in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  • Melt butter in another shallow bowl.
  • Dip each chicken tender in butter then roll in seasoned cheese mixture and place on prepared baking sheet.

You can broil for a few minutes to crisp up even more but watch very carefully not to burn the cheese.
