Lemon Chicken Tenders Recipe

  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons curry powder
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. In a bowl, stir together paprika, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle seasoning over chicken pieces. Dip pieces in egg, then dredge in bread crumbs. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in an aluminum foil-lined 15×10-inch jelly roll pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, turning once.
  4. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stir together sugar, lemon juice, and curry powder, stirring until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.
  5. Drizzle lemon sauce over chicken, return to oven, and bake 5 minutes more.
