Baked Honey BBQ Chicken Fingers

Feeds: 3-4

Prep time: 30min  Total time: 50min


1 1/2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken tenders
3/4 cup your favorite BBQ sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I just used all-purpose)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp smoked or regular paprika
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cup Panko crumbs
Nonstick spray

Get all your ingredients together, it makes things go much faster!

Pour in your favorite BBQ sauce and add honey (optional) to the chicken tenders.

Stick your (clean) hands in there! Get the gooey honey and BBQ sauce all mixed together, and make sure it covers all the chicken. Put it in the fridge and let sit for (minimum) a half an hour. For more flavor, and if you have more time, let sit for 6 hours or so. The longer it marinates, the more flavor!

In a bowl, add flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. Mix together so all the seasonings are even within the flour and set to the side. Also get your pan ready by spraying it with a non-stick spray.

In another bowl, add your eggs and beat well.

Put the Panko crumbs on a plate, and set up your assembly line. Make sure your baking sheet is nearby. Start by taking a chicken tender out a covering it with flour, flipping it a few times for full coverage.

Transfer the chicken tender to the egg wash and flip a few times to completely cover it.

And lastly transfer it to the Panko crumbs. Flip 2-3 times and pat on crumbs. We want a crumbs to be thick on the chicken tender.

Put the complete chicken tender on the baking sheet and rinse off your fingers for the next round!

Repeat the process to all of the Chicken tenders. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes at 400 degrees F. After 10ish minutes, take out and flip. Bake for about 10 more minutes or until chicken is golden brown.

Serve with ketchup or BBQ sauce!
