We love this healthy alternative to fried chicken, and I could seriously drink this sauce with a straw, it is that good.

How to make baked honey lime chicken tenders:

  •  Cut your chicken breasts into smaller strips, or you could also use chicken tenders.
  •  In a bowl or gallon sized ziploc, combine the dry ingredients.
  •  Add your chicken tenders to the mixture and coat them completely.

  •  Grease your pan with non stick cooking spray and place them in a row.

  •  While the chicken strips are baking, combine your sauce. If you are having a hard time combining it, you can put it in a pan and let it heat up a little to better combine and mix it.

  •  After cooking the strips, and combining the sauce, pour the mixture over the baked chicken tenders, and serve warm.

You could also squeeze a little lime juice over them for a little extra lime flavor.

could i make this into a freezer meal?

This recipe could easily be made into a freezer meal. However, there are a few things you should note.

For this particular recipe, we recommend making and preparing the chicken as directed, but not adding the sauce.

We recommend making the chicken, freezing it, then removing them from the freezer and continuing the recipe, as directed in the instructions.

We don’t recommend pre-making the sauce for this recipe.

  1. Just made this tonight. My boyfriend and I loved it, he is a picky eater so I'm was happy that he enjoyed it. Just one question, my panko didn't stick to my chicken. Any reason why that would happen? I made my chicken into cubes but don't feel like that would matter. Even with that slight issue, it was amazing.
  2. Hi! How can I make this into a freezer meal to make ahead of time? I'm thinking of coating the chicken and then freezing it in a foil pan. Do you think it would defrost okay and that the breadcrumbs would stay intact? Maybe you could give me a better idea! Thank you!
  3. I followed recipe and the breading basically disappeared when I baked them. I think egg first then breading would have worked. I turned the oven up to 400 when they weren’t getting done after 20 minutes. Could be my oven though. The sauce was yummy and sticky! I served it with veggie fried rice. We liked it !
