Make low-fat chicken tenders

Learn how to make low-fat chicken tenders. Even if you're watching your waistline, you don't have to give up your favorite foods. Baked – not fried – chicken tenders can be just as tasty as the real deal.

You Will Need

* 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* 1-c All-purpose flour
* 1-tsp black pepper
* 1 large egg white
* 1-c Low-fat buttermilk
* 1 cup of cornflakes
* And low-fat dressing or dipping sauce
* A large baking sheet
* Aluminum foil
* An 8-inch kitchen knife
* 3 small bowls
* A wire rack
* Cooking spray
* And tongs
* Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, or Cajun spice

Step 1. Preheat and prep

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with foil. Set the sheet aside.

Step 2. Cut the chicken

Use the kitchen knife to cut the chicken into pieces 1 to 2 inches in length.

Step 3. Prepare dipping bowls

Combine the flour and black pepper in a bowl. In a second bowl, beat the egg white and buttermilk with a fork. In the third bowl, crush the cup of cornflakes so they look like breadcrumbs.

Step 4. Dip in flour

Dip a tender into the flour and pepper first and turn over to coat completely.

Step 5. Dip in egg and cornflakes

Dip into the egg and buttermilk mixture, and then roll in the cornflakes until the chicken piece is completely covered. Place on a wire rack to set. Repeat with the rest of the chicken.

Step 6. Prepare the pan

Spray the foil with cooking spray, and then transfer the tenders from the wire rack onto the pan. Leave about 2 inches of space between each tender, then put the pan in the oven.

Step 7. Bake until golden brown

Bake for five minutes, then turn over with tongs and bake the other side until golden, about five minutes more. Serve with your favorite low-fat dressing or dipping sauce.
