How to make Baked BBQ Chicken Tenders:
Step one: Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Then prepare a 2 quart casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray and set it aside.
Step two: Place chicken tenders in a large baggy with oil and massage into chicken. Add in paprika, garlic powder, and salt. Massage chicken tenders again and dump everything into a casserole dish.
Step three: Bake for 20 minutes then remove the chicken tenders and brush with bbq sauce. Place back into the oven for 10 -15 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
Step four: Remove from oven and let rest before serving.
