My favorite recipe for Boneless Chicken Tenders and Boneless Pork Chops

This is one of those recipes that is just in my recipe book and I have no idea where it came from.  It was initially meant to be for Boneless Pork Chops but I actually use the same thing for those and Boneless Chicken Tenders.  It's very easy and has never failed me so I don't think there is much room for error!  Nothing fancy, but very yummy.  Enjoy!


Ingredients:
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • breadcrumbs
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 6 thin cut boneless pork chops (or a package of boneless chicken tenders)
  • (just add more or less ingredients depending on how much you are cooking)

Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Dip meat in egg/spice mixture
  • Coat with breadcrumbs
  • Brown in oil
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness of meat (use a meat thermometer to be sure they are cooked enough, chicken is going to take longer than pork - maybe even up to 45 minutes - 1 hour depending on how much you are cooking and how thick the pieces are)

Like I said, I have never had a problem with this recipe however my father tells me he does not like this method because he always burns the meat in the frying pan.  Just add more oil if the pan is getting dry (I use more than 3 tablespoons by the end, for sure) and don't turn up the heat too high.  It only takes a minute on each side, just to make them a little bit crispy, barely browned.  They will cook in the oven.

I've also used this recipe with chicken breasts cut up into bite size pieces - I call them chicken bites.  They are another family favorite!

Let me know how yours turn out!

  2. Made these tonight, and they were delicious! The only thing I would have done differently was add salt and pepper to the egg mixture. Otherwise, very good!

    1. No, sorry for not being clearer - I should update the recipe to be more specific! The oil is to brown the chicken in a frying pan prior to putting on/in the baking sheet/dish.
