What you’ll need:

Chicken: Use boneless, skinless chicken.
If you want, you can cut the boneless chicken breast into ½-inch pieces.

All-purpose flour: Flour is an essential ingredient for the breading.

Cornflakes: Crushed cornflakes are used to coat the chicken strips, to make them crunchy and crispy

Eggs: You will make an egg wash by whisking the 2 eggs together with a little water.

1 ½ pound chicken tenders (or boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips)
½ cup milk
2 eggs
4 ½ cups cornflakes
½ tsp paprika powder
½ tsp garlic powder
A jar of TOUM to serve


  1. Preheat the oven to  400° F. 
  2. Add the cornflakes to a food processor or plastic bag and crush them into small crumbs, then transfer them into a shallow bowl.
  3. You’ll need 3 shallow bowls. Combine the flour, paprika powder, salt, and garlic powder in the first bowl, eggs, and water in the second, and cornflakes in the third.
  4. Dip each chicken tender in the flour and seasoning bowl first, turning to coat both sides. Then place in the egg and water bowl, then roll in the crumb cornflakes mixture to coat.
  5. Transfer the chicken to a parchment-lined sheet pan and spray lightly with cooking spray.
  6. Bake the chicken tenders for 18-22 minutes until golden brown.
  7. Serve with TOUM and enjoy!


Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. Store them in the fridge and reheat them for 5-7 minutes, until they become hot and crispy.

Can I use breadcrumbs instead of cornflakes?
Yes, of course you can!  They will taste very good but won’t look golden-brown, instead, they will look pale.

What do you serve with chicken tenders?
You can serve a salad, french fries, grilled potatoes, and roasted or steamed veggies.

What internal temperature should chicken be cooked at?
Chicken is considered safe to eat at an internal temperature of 165°F

Can I use another type of flour, other than all-purpose?
Yes, feel free to use any type of flour you want: gluten-free flour, cassava flour, rice flour, chickpea flour, or cornstarch. 


Can I prepare them today and bake them another day?
Definitely! You can bake them immediately, or refrigerate them for later. To freeze, arrange the breaded chicken tenders on a baking sheet and freeze them in freezer bags for up to 1 month.
