CHEDDAR BACON RANCH CHICKEN TENDERS! These Baked Chicken Strips are SO CRISPY, flavorful, and delicious. Coated in ranch, cheese, and bacon, and baked to perfection.


  1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil spray and set aside.
  2. Fill one shallow bowl with the flour and ranch seasoning, stirring to combine. Fill another shallow bowl with the egg, whisking lightly. Combine the panko, cheese, and bacon in a large ziplock bag and stir/shake to combine. Set all in a line.
  3. Start by dipping each chicken tender in the flour/ranch mixture, patting to make sure its covered. Dip in the egg, allowing excess to fall away, and then place in the bag with the panko mixture. Repeat with all the tenders.
  4. Seal the bag and shake to coat all the chicken fully. You’ll want to press and turn the bag until all the tenders are fully coated in the panko mixture.
  5. Place the tenders on the prepared baking sheet and spray the strips lightly with more olive oil spray.
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning once. When chicken is fully cooked through (white throughout), turn on your broiler and cook for 2-4 minutes more or until the coating is extra crispy. (optional)
  7. Serve with ranch and enjoy!
