Crispy Sweet and Spicy Chicken Tenders
I just got home from a long weekend visiting Gina and Brandy and had another hilariously awesome weekend. It was full of laughter, eating, meeting new friends, getting makeup tips, and sharing blogging tips amongst each other.
It’s so funny how blogging slash the internet brings you together these days. I feel like growing up, that was a huge no-no. You never meet anyone that you’ve been talking to on the internet let alone travel to visit them and stay a weekend with them. Times sure have changed!
Today’s recipe post is in partnership with Soy Vay.
I love rice as much as the next Asian so when Soy Vay asked me to pick a team in the Battle of the Blands, I had to choose rice over tofu. I mean, I do love tofu but not as much as I love rice. Rice is such a great base for any recipe – kind of like pasta for Italians. What better way to top rice with two delicious Soy Vay slathered chicken tenders?
For this recipe, I actually used two Soy Vay sauces because I saw the Soy Vay® Spicy’N Sweet Chili Heat and really wanted to try it since I always get the Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teryiaki® one. However, when I was making the chicken tenders, I thought why not have one sweet and salty version and one spicy version?
Who do you think is going to win Battle of the Blands? Rice or tofu? I’m totally voting for #teamrice and you should too! And then go make this recipe in support of team rice :)
Crispy Sweet and Spicy Chicken Tenders placed on top of rice is delicious way to spice up your weeknight dinner!
- 1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken tenderloins
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 1 cup milk
- 1 large egg
- 2/3 cup Soy Vay® Spicy’N Sweet Chili Heat or Soy Vay® Veri Veri Teryiaki®
- White rice for serving
- Green scallions, for garnish, if desired
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a wire rack on top of a large baking sheet and set aside.
- In two shallow containers, add panko to one container and milk and egg to the other container. Whisk together the milk and egg.
- Coat the chicken tenders into the milk and egg mixture then drain off the excess. Coat the chicken in panko on both sides and gently press panko onto chicken. Shake off excess and place onto wire rack. Repeat until all chicken tenders are coated.
- Bake for 10 minutes then using tongs, flip the chicken to cook on the other side for another 10 minutes.
- Once the chicken is done cooking, let cool for 10 minutes.
- In the meantime, pour your sauce of choice into a shallow container. Dip the chicken tenders in the sauce of your choice and place on top of white rice. Garnish with green scallions, if desired.
