It can be difficult to make simple staples taste good quickly. My Five Minute Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders do just that. With a five minute prep time, you can pop them in the oven and help kids with homework, get a couple chores done, or just sit back and put your tired feet up.
Chicken tenderloins are my favorite meat for quick dinners. They cook fast and don’t require cutting or trimming first. Since chicken doesn’t have a ton of flavor on its own you can incorporate them in hundreds of ways. Here are a few of my other favorites:
This recipe has the same topping I use on my Garlic Parmesan Zucchini. It is a family favorite and I knew it would also be great on chicken. My kids gobbled this up.
I must say it is awfully hard to type while holding a baby. If my posts are a bit less wordy than normal that is why. My sweet 7-week old boy is such a blessing but he loves to be in mama’s arms. I wear him in baby carriers often but he’s happier if I’m moving around doing chores than sitting and typing. Creating recipes and taking photos is easy, even editing since I can click with one hand, but two-handed typing, not so much.
Five Minute Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders – Low Carb, THM S, Grain Gluten Free, Keto
2.5 pounds chicken tenderloins
3/4 cup mayo
3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, divided
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 400.
Combine the mayo, 1/4 cup of the cheese, garlic, and salt in a medium bowl. Add the chicken and stir to coat. Put the chicken on a large baking sheet. I put parchment on mine to save on the cleanup.
Sprinkle on the rest of the cheese.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the chicken is cooked through.
Optional: Broil for 2-3 minutes to brown the cheese. Watch the chicken closely if you are broiling so it doesn’t burn.
