Tortilla Encrusted Chicken Tenders

I love this fun tex-mex twist on chicken tenders! It’s perfect with a Mexican corn salad or a black bean salad. Chicken tenderloins are easy to cook for weeknight dinners because there’s not much prep. They are already cut to the perfect size so all you have to do is bread them and bake or air fryer. If you want more ideas for chicken tenders, try my Air Fryer Chicken Tenders, or these Pickle Brined Chicken Tenders.

This recipe got two thumbs up from my family. They are easy to make, and take less than 30 minutes – perfect for weeknight cooking! I crushed the tortillas in a ziplock bag and left it a little course for texture. The squeeze of lime on top and salsa for dipping, adds a fun Mexican-American twist to chicken tenders.

How do you get the breading to stick to the chicken tenders?

How To Keep Breading From Falling Off Chicken

  1. Pat the chicken dry.
  2. Dredge in flour.
  3. Dip in beaten eggs.
  4. Coat in the crumbs, pressing the crumbs with the back of a fork.
  5. Carefully transfer to a baking sheet.
