    •    3 tablespoons olive oil

    •    3 tablespoons honey

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Grab three bowls. Add the flour to one bowl.
  3. Combine panko, 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese, dried parsley, garlic powder, about 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Stir.

  5. Slice chicken breasts to the size of tenders (about 1 and 1/4th inch strips)    
  6. Coat in flour, coat in garlic lemon mixture, and then coat in the Parmesan panko mixture.
  7. Place on prepared sheet pan. Use any remaining Parmesan panko mixture and sprinkle over tenders.
  8. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes and remove.
  9. Flip the chicken tenders to the other side

  11. If desired place lemon slices over the chicken (optional)
  12. Return to the oven and bake for another 10-12 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken has reached 165 degrees F.
  13. Meanwhile, whisk remaining 3 tablespoons melted butter, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 1-2 teaspoons lemon zest, 3 tablespoons olive oil, and 3 tablespoons honey in a small bowl. Add some pepper and parsley if desired.
