These were so good they that you didn’t even need dipping sauce!
1 and 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
3/4 cup Stubb BBQ sauce
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Slap Ya Mama Cajun Seasoning
2 large eggs
1 and 1/2 cup Bread Crumbs (Panko works great)
nonstick spray like PAM or olive oil spray
Olive oil for the pan
Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
Mix barbecue sauce and honey in a large bowl. Put chicken tenders in a gallon size ziploc bag, and pour bbq sauce/ honey mixture over chicken and seal, Turn bag over a few times to coat, marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and up to 4 hours. The longer, the more flavorful your chicken.
Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or coat heavily with olive oil.
Combine flour, bread crumbs, salt, pepper, and slap ya mama in a shallow dish. Beat eggs in another dish. Remove chicken strips one at a time. Then coat each chicken strip in flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Then, dip in egg and let any excess drip off. Then roll in the flour mixture again. Place the chicken strips on the prepared baking sheet.(Dispose of marinade in trash) Spray each strip with nonstick spray to seal the breading, this will keep the breading from staying raw and allows it to bake onto the chicken fingers.
Bake for 10 minutes. Turn each piece over and continue baking until the outside is crisp and the centers are cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Baking times may vary, just make sure yours are cooked through. If you like them more brown, bake longer.
