Parmesan Chicken Breast Tenders



1/2 cup gluten free flour
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, finely chopped
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 large egg, lightly beaten
10-12 chicken breast tenders (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
1/4 cup canola oil
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Combine flour, cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and salt in a medium shallow dish.  Combine buttermilk and egg in another shallow dish.  Warm oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.  Dip chicken tenders in buttermilk mixture and then dredge in flour mix.  Add chicken pieces to the oil and cook about 3 minutes on each side or until brown.  Don't allow them to touch while cooking.  Spray a large baking dish, cookie sheet with edges works great, with non-stick spray.  Add browned chicken pieces not allowing them to touch.  Bake about 5 minutes or until chicken is done.

Martha:  Finally I've found a recipe for fried chicken that is actually crispy and delicious.  And it has so many possibilities for changes in flavor.  You can add seasonings like oregano for a totally different taste.  This chicken is well worth making!
