Ingredients

    1 cup bread crumbs (1/2 plain and 1/2 italian)
    2 tablespoons brown sugar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    *1/2 teaspoon old bay seasoning or allspice
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    4 chicken breasts (cut into 2 inch pieces)
    1/3 cup of flour
    2 eggs beaten or egg beaters
    * this ingredient was not listed in the food data base.


Directions

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees F.

I usually have 3 shallow pans or pie pans lined up. 1 for the flour, 1 for the egg, and 1 for the bread crumb mixture.

Mix bread crumbs, sugar, salt, pepper, and old bay seasoning (or allspice). Drizzle 3 tablespoons vegetable oil evenly over the breading tossing it to mix thoroughly.

Cut chicken into about 2-inch pieces.( I have used larger slices to make more of a "chicken finger".(Next is where my kids like to help) Coat chicken first in flour, then in egg, then in bread crumb mixture. Place chicken on a cookie sheet and cook for about 15 minutes (longer if using larger chicken pieces). You are looking for the chicken tenders to be golden brown.
