  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the breadcrumbs, flour, ground flaxseed, Parmesan, salt, pepper, dried rosemary, and olive oil. Mix well.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, lightly beat the eggs.
  4. Dip the chicken tenders into the eggs, allowing the excess to drip off. Then dip into the crumb mixture, pressing to adhere. Repeat and transfer to the prepared baking sheet, leaving space between the tenders.
  5. Bake until the chicken is cooked through, about 13-15 minutes, turning halfway through. Serve with our Homemade Ketchup and Simple Steamed Asparagus.

Chef Tips

To have a quick meal on hand at any time, lay out breaded chicken tenders flat in one layer on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and freeze. Store tenders in portions in Ziplock bags and keep in the freezer for up to 3 months.
