Chicken tenders are thin strips of breast meat, available either plain or breaded. Frozen chicken tenders are convenient and easy to make and can be added to a variety of dishes including salads, casseroles and soups. Buy frozen chicken strips in bulk to save time and money, and use them as you need them. When preparing uncooked chicken tenders, it’s important that the meat reaches a safe internal cooking temperature.
Things You'll Need
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees.
Cover a baking pan with foil. Place breaded or plain frozen chicken tenders on foil.
Bake chicken tenders for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the juices run clear. Pierce the thickest portion of the tenders with a fork to make sure the juices run clear, or test the chicken with a meat thermometer, which should read 170 degrees.
Bake thawed uncooked chicken tenders for 15 to 25 minutes, or until the juices run clear and/or a meat temperature reads 170 degrees.
