Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 6


  • 1 cup flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups panko bread crumb
  • 1 tablespoon Everything Bagel Seasoning (or more to taste)
  • 3 pounds chicken tenders or chicken breast cut into strips, about ½” thick

  2. In a shallow medium bowl or pie plate, add. the flour and set aside.

  3. In a separate shallow medium bowl or pie plate, whisk together the eggs and set aside.

  4. To make the panko coating, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and add the panko bread crumbs and Everything Bagel Seasoning. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon, tossing until the panko is lightly toasted and fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat, place in a third shallow dish and set aside.

  5. To assemble the chicken fingers, lightly dredge a piece of chicken on all sides in the flour coating (shaking off the excess), followed by the egg mixture (again on both sides) and then the panko mixture, being sure to lightly press some panko on all sides of the chicken finger. Place the finger on the prepared baking sheet and repeat this process with the remaining chicken fingers until they are all coated.

  6. Bake the chicken fingers for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the chicken fingers are golden brown and the internal temperature is 165 F. Remove from the oven and serve immediately!
