Recipe Tips:

These honey sriracha chicken tenders are great in the oven! They don’t require as much work as making them in the skillet. You can also try making them in the air fryer! I think the oven method gets them pretty crispy though.

You’ll want to line a baking pan with parchment paper. Then you need two shallow bowls. You want them to be shallow so you’re able to dip the tenders in it.

Dip the chicken tender in the egg mixture first then the flour mixture. Place on the parchment paper. Bake then brush the honey sriracha sauce on top. Serve with ranch! Makes 6-7 tenders.
