Chicken tenders are one of those foods that everyone in the family can agree on. I like to keep things interesting by experimenting with different coatings and seasonings for my tenders!

This recipe uses classic potato chips (who doesn't love chips?) to make a crispy coating. The crispy factor is upped a bit more by combining the chips with crushed cornflakes.

Yup, corn flakes cereal and chips. Sounds weird, tastes amazing!

I hope you love these delish, family-friendly chicken tenders as much as I do!

HOW TO MAKE POTATO CHIP CHICKEN TENDERS

Potato chip chicken tenders are super easy to make! To make them, dip chicken tenders are dipped in melted butter, followed by a combination of crushed potato chips, crushed cornflakes, seasoned salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and Italian seasoning. They are baked in the oven at 375 degrees F until cooked through. See below for a detailed ingredients list and instructions.

WHAT KIND OF POTATO CHIPS SHOULD I USE?

You can you any kind of potato chips you like to make potato chip chicken tenders. I like to use plain potato chips, but you can get creative. Try sour cream and onion, barbecue, or a spicy jalapeƱo flavored chip!

HOW MANY CHICKEN BREASTS MAKE ONE POUND

If you can't find chicken already portioned into tenders, you can cut your own from chicken breasts. You can substitute the chicken tenders with two chicken breasts cut into strips. Two chicken breasts will equal roughly one pound.

HOW LONG DO POTATO CHIP CHICKEN TENDERS LAST IN THE FRIDGE?

Potato Chip Chicken Tender leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to three days. The coating softens in the refrigerator, so the best reheating methods are a toaster oven or air fryer instead of a microwave.

If the chips and cornflakes are not crushed finely enough, they will not adhere to the chicken well. You can crush by hand or give them a few whirls in your food processor to get the right consistency.
