I feel like chicken tenders are kind of my love language. Not going to lie as a 30 something mother of three I still will order myself chicken tenders and I don't even care about the judgment.
I don't find myself to be a picky eating at all and love to try new things but there is something about classic comfort food that I just crave.
These Honey BBQ Chicken Tenders are so simple to make. Full of flavor with the perfect simple sauce recipe brush on top.
Breading and Baking Chicken Tenders:
Step one: First start by preheating your oven and then preparing a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray or parchment paper.
Step two: Place flour in a shallow bowl then roll chicken tenders in it until coated.
Step three: Prepare two separate bowls. One with egg and milk whisked together and the other with your bread crumbs and seasonings.
Step four: Dip chicken pieced into the egg wash then into the seasoned bread crumbs and place in the prepared casserole dish. Repeat with all chicken tenders.
Step five: Bake until cooked through flipping halfway through cooking time.
How to make honey BBQ sauce:

On the stove top heat BBQ sauce, ketchup, and honey and whisk over low heat. When chicken is done brush them with warm sauce then serve. I served mine with ranch dressing for dipping.
