Tortilla chips provide the crispy coating for these kid-friendly (and kid-at-heart-friendly) chicken tenders. The easy dipping sauce can be flavored with Sriracha or honey mustard.


  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/3 cups finely crushed yellow corn tortilla chips*
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenderloins
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha or 3 tablespoons honey mustard


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees . Whisk together the mayonnaise and buttermilk; transfer half the mixture to a shallow dish. Set aside the rest for sauce. In another dish, combine finely crushed tortilla chips, garlic powder and black pepper.
  2. Dip chicken tenderloins in the mayo mixture, then the chip mixture, to coat. Bake on a foil-lined baking sheet for 15 minutes or until golden. For dipping sauce, stir Sriracha sauce or honey mustard into the reserved mayo mixture.


  • * You will need 5 ounces (or 4 1/2 cups) of chips to get 1 1/3 cups finely crushed tortilla chips.
