There are many benefits to making a freezer-aisle staple like chicken tenders at home: not only do you get to control the ingredients in the recipe, but it can be a fun project to master this classic three-step breading process of flour, egg, and breadcrumb coating. Once you’ve got the hang of this method, it works with a variety of meats and vegetables. For example, if you wanted to make chicken-fried steak (well… an oven-baked version in this case), this method would work. Eggplant would work equally well, too. Bonus: This big-batch recipe makes 12 servings so that you’ll can get a few different dinners out of one session of cooking.
