Parmesan Chicken Tenders are absolutely divine and I like to call them adult chicken fingers. I love making these for my hubby and I to enjoy when I make Homemade Chicken Nuggets for the kids. I love the taste of the spices and Parmesan in this delicious Parmesan Chicken Tenders recipe.
This easy recipe can be prepped in as little as 10 minutes and then place in the oven to bake in 25 minutes. It does not take long and the chicken tenders are moist and scrumptious. I usually serve my Parmesan Chicken Tenders with corn and fried potatoes.
