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.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 450°. 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.

  • 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.
