How to make Jalapeno Everything Bagel Chicken Tenders:
This recipe uses just a handful of ingredients but packs a ton of flavor. It features two secret ingredients that make it addictingly crispy and packed with flavor: La Selva Jalapeno Everything Bagel Seasoning, and panko breadcrumbs. You don’t need a deep fryer for crispy chicken tenders, and this recipe is proof!
We start off blending the perfectly balanced La Selva Beach Spice Jalapeno Everything Bagel Seasoning with crispy panko breadcrumbs. Panko is Japanese style breadcrumbs, which are larger and flakier than standard breadcrumbs. Because panko doesn’t absorb as much grease, they stay crispier, longer. If you can’t find panko, feel free to use whatever breadcrumbs you have on hand. The key is to make sure your tenders are fully coated in the crumb mixture and brushed with a touch of olive oil for optimal crisp.
Once coated dredged in flour, egg, and the breadcrumb blend, they are baked in under 15 minutes, giving you just enough time to clean up, set the table, toss together a salad, and whip up a tangy Lemon Garlic & Parsley Yogurt Sauce. Making this simple yogurt sauce is as easy as 1-2-3, simply mix plain yogurt, all natural La Selva Garlic Salt with Parsley, and lemon. The star ingredient, is our special blend of garlic, dried parsley and Himalayan sea salt, helping you make something special, without the fuss.
Start to finish, this Jalapeno Everything Bagel Chicken Tender recipe is on the plate in less than 30 minutes, making this the perfect quick and easy meal that is ready on your schedule.
