• 3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated • 1 (1 ounce) packet ranch dressing seasoning mix • 2 tablespoons dried parsley leaves, divided • 2 pounds chicken tenders • 1/2 cup salted butter, melted


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 2

Line a baking tray with aluminum foil.

Step 3

Put the parmesan cheese, ranch dressing seasoning, and 1 tablespoon of the dried parsley leaves onto a large plate or a shallow dish. Use a fork to then mix all of the ingredients fully.

Step 4

Using another fork, dip each side of the chicken tenders into the melted butter and the parmesan cheese mixture, making sure that all sides are fully coated.

Step 5

Move the coated chicken tenders onto the prepared lined baking tray, placing the chicken tenders about 1/2 inch apart from each other.

Step 6

When all of the chicken has been fully coated and put on the baking tray, bake the chicken until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F when checked with a meat thermometer, about 23-35 minutes.

Step 7

Turn on the broiler and cook the tops of the chicken, keeping a close eye on them and pulling them out when they are golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Step 8

Move the tenders from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes before serving.
