Today, I want to share with you a simple and delicious recipe for Parmesan Chicken Strips that will satisfy your cravings while allowing you to take control of the ingredients. This recipe, shared by my mother-in-law, is not only quick and easy but also brings a delightful crunch and an irresistible flavor to the table.

- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 2 pounds of chicken tenders
- 4 teaspoons Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (220 degrees Celsius). This will ensure that the chicken strips cook evenly and develop a crispy texture.
- In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and grated Parmesan cheese. This mixture will act as a flavorful coating for the chicken.
- Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper according to your preference. The seasoning will add a hint of savoriness to the dish.
- Take each chicken tender and coat it generously with the mayonnaise and cheese mixture. Ensure that the chicken is evenly covered to create a tasty crust.
- Once coated, roll each chicken tender in the Italian seasoned bread crumbs. The bread crumbs will give the chicken its satisfying crunch.
- Arrange the coated chicken tenders on a sheet pan. The sheet pan ensures even cooking and prevents the chicken from sticking.
- Place the sheet pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 20 minutes. Keep an eye on the chicken to ensure it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius) for safe consumption.
- Once cooked to perfection, remove the golden-brown chicken strips from the oven and let them cool slightly.
- Serve the Parmesan Chicken Strips with your favorite dipping sauce. Whether it’s tangy barbecue sauce, creamy ranch dressing, or zesty marinara, the choice is yours. The dipping sauce complements the crispy chicken and adds an extra layer of flavor.
With this easy-to-follow recipe, you can create restaurant-worthy Parmesan Chicken Strips in the comfort of your own kitchen.
