Creole Chicken Tenders

  • Preheat oven to 450F.
  • In one bowl, combine greek yogurt and dijon mustard. In a second bowl, mix together the panko, parsley, garlic powder, pepper and salt.
  • Dip the chicken tenders into the yogurt mixture and then coat in the breadcrumbs.
  • Place the chicken tenders onto a wire rack and allow to sit for 10 minutes. Do NOT skip this step, it really helps the chicken tenders turn out nice and crunchy!
  • Place a piece of parchment paper or a silat mat on a baking sheet and transfer the chicken tenders to the baking sheet. If you have an oven safe wire rack, use that, too!
  • Spray the chicken tenders with cooking spray.
  • Bake for 18-23 minutes.

Dipping Sauce:

In a bowl, combine the greek yogurt, parsley, cajun seasoning mix (start with 1 TBSp and adjust to your taste preferences) and pepper. Refrigerate until needed.
