Healthy Chicken Tenders and Homemade Honey Mustard

These chicken tenders are juicy and delicious, yet a much healthier alternative to most chicken tenders. The honey mustard is simple to make, without any refined sugars like most store-bought brands.

Chicken Tenders
  • 2 lbs. Chicken Breast (boneless & skinless)
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 box Whole Grain Crackers (I used Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers)
Honey Mustard
  • 1/4 c. Raw Honey
  • 1/4 c. Plain Yellow Mustard


Healthy & Juicy Chicken Tenders

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil or avocado oil.
  2. If your chicken is not already cut into chicken tenders, cut your chicken breast into chicken tender-like strips.
  3. Add your whole grain crackers into a food processor and blend until your crackers become a fine powder. Pour into a wide, shallow dish.
  4. Beat the 2 eggs in a wide, shallow dish until the yolks and whites are evenly combined.
  5. Dip each chicken tender in the egg, and then into the cracker crumbs, making sure to evenly coat each chicken tender. Place on the cookie sheet.
  6. Bake the chicken tenders for 35-40 minutes, making sure to flip halfway through. Remove from the oven, allow to slightly cool, and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
Homemade Honey Mustard
  1. Mix together the raw honey and the plain yellow mustard until evenly combined. It may be a tad runny, so refrigerate if you would like it a bit thicker. Enjoy!
