Check out these Baked Chicken Tender Caesar Wraps! I'll go through baking chicken tenders in this recipe which you can dress with the Easy Caesar Dressing or Classic Caesar Dressing I posted last week. Wrap 'em up with some romaine, roasted red peppers, and bacon and you've got a great lunch.
1cupPanko Bread Crumbs
2Chicken Breasts or 5-6 Chicken Tenders
Roasted Red Peppers
Homemade Caesar Dressing
Preheat an oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Spread out panko on the baking sheet and season well with salt and pepper - about 2 tsp each - and spray with cooking spray. Mix well and spread out. Bake for 5-8 minutes until golden brown. Transfer baked panko to breading station to cool and discard any left over crumbs.
Prep 3 point breading station with seasoned flour, whisked eggs, and cooled panko. Cut chicken breast in to 3-4 strips. Dredge well in flour then shake off excess. Dunk and fully coat in eggs then drop in panko. Roll tenders in panko then set aside. Place on a lined and sprayed baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes at 400°F or until internal temp is 162°F.
While the chicken tenders are baking, wash and dry romaine lettuce. Fry up a few pieces of bacon and slice some roasted red peppers if you're using either of them.
Build the Baked Chicken Tender Caesar Wrap with your favorite sandwich wrap, Romaine Lettuce, Red Peppers, Bacon, and Baked Chicken Tenders. Top with homemade Caesar Dressing and freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano.
To fry your chicken instead of baking it - Use the same 3-part breading station but use seasoned panko instead of the baked panko as instructed. Fry in 1 cup vegetable oil at 330-340°F for 4-5 minutes (flipping half way) until internal temp is 162°F. Transfer to paper towel to drain before building your Fried Chicken Tender Caesar Wrap. Then give yourself a pat on the back for making the more delicious version of this sandwich ;-)
