Sourdough Crusted Chicken Tenders
Delicious baked breaded chicken tenders using fresh sourdough bread and chicken from our freshly pastured chickens.


  • (1 lb (6-8 tenders)) Chicken Tenders
  • (10-12 slices) Fresh Sourdough Bread
  • (3 large) Pastured Eggs
  • (1 tbsp) Italian Seasoning
  • (1 tsp) Garlic Powder
  • (1 tsp) Onion Powder
  • (1 tbsp) Worcestershire Sauce
  • (4 tbsp) Grass Fed Butter
  • (1 tsp (plus more per taste)) Salt
  • (1/2 tsp (plus more per taste)) Black Pepper
  • (1/2 cup) Flour


  1. Preheat oven to 425 F
  2. If you have a baking rack, place it on a rimmed baking sheet (you can also just place chicken directly on baking sheet if you don't have a rack, they just may not get as crispy)
  3. Season chicken tenders with some salt and pepper. (P.S. you can also use boneless chicken breast instead, just cut lengthwise into "chicken tender" sized pieces)
  4. Using a food processor, pulse bread slices to create fine bread crumbs (may need to work in batches depending on size of machine). Add garlic and onion powders, Italian seasoning, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp black pepper. Pulse to mix thoroughly.
  5. Get out three separate small bowls. Bowl #1: add plain flour. Bowl #2: lightly whip eggs and add Worcestershire sauce. Bowl #3: add seasoned breadcrumbs.
  6. Take each tender and coat with flour, knocking off any excess flour before next step.
  7. Dip into egg wash, then into the breadcrumb bowl. Cover thoroughly with breadcrumbs, then place on prepared baking sheet.
  8. Continue with each tender.
  9. Place 1/2 tbsp of butter on top of each tender. Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes or until cooked through.
