Servings: 4


  • 1 pound boneless and skinless chicken breast cut into 1-inch strips
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup cashews finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F and place a wire rack on a large baking sheet. Spray it with a non-stick spray and set aside.
  • Place the flour in a shallow bowl and set aside.
  • Place the 2 eggs in another shallow bowl and beat. Set aside.
  • Place both bread crumbs, cashews, parmesan cheese, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and black pepper in another shallow bowl. Toss the ingredients together to combine and set aside.
  • Season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Dredge the chicken in the flour, making sure to evenly coat it. Transfer it to the egg mixture and then transfer to the bread crumbs mixture, making sure to evenly coat. Press the crumbs in where you need to. Place the chicken on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Once you have coated all of your chicken and place it on the baking sheet, lightly spray it with a non-stick spray. Place it in the oven and bake for 10-11 minutes on each side. When you flip the chicken, spray again with a non-stick spray.
  • While your chicken is baking, prepare your spicy ketchup. In a small bowl, whisk together the ketchup, sriracha, chili powder and garlic salt until thoroughly combined. Set aside.
  • Serve the chicken tenders with the spicy ketchup and eat immediately! Enjoy!
