Chicken Tenders (Freezer Friendly Meal)

Can I say these were the best chicken tenders I've ever had? Um, yes, I can! 

Hubby wanted one of those frozen turkey pot pies so I had to figure out what I was going to eat. I had chicken breast tenders in the freezer and the rest was off the cuff. 


  • 6 oz chicken breast tenders
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 garlic powder


  1. In a re-sealable bag, mix the flour and paprika. Add chicken to bag and shake, shake, shake. Shake your bootie! HA HA Sorry...
  2. Beat the egg in one shallow bowl and pour the breadcrumbs into another mixed with the spices. 
  3. Dip chicken in egg and then into breadcrumb mixture. 
  4. Give them a little squirt of Pam Olive Oil spray. 

I cooked them in my air fryer but you could definitely bake them in oven on 375 for 18 to 20 minutes. 

I set my air fryer on 400 for 6 minutes, flipped them and cooked for another 6 minutes. 

This recipe was 1 serving for 5 pts each on Weight Watchers Freestyle Program. 

Note: You can bread them and lay out on parchment lined baking sheet. Set them in the freezer for a few hours and then place in a Ziploc bag for future use. When ready to eat, place frozen chicken tenders on baking sheet and cook on 350 for 30 to 35 minutes. If I was doing this, I would do it in bulk.
