  1. Stir mustard, honey, orange juice, garlic together in a glass or ceramic bowl. Transfer 1/4 cup mustard mixture to a bowl to use as a dipping sauce; add chicken to the remaining mustard mixture and toss to coat. Marinate chicken for at least 30 minutes, or up to 3 hours.
  2. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Place wire cooling racks onto baking sheets.
  3. Stir whole wheat flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in a shallow bowl. Stir bread crumbs and 1/2 teaspoon salt together in another shallow bowl. Place beaten eggs in another shallow bowl.
  4. Gently press a chicken strip into the flour mixture to coat and shake to remove excess flour. Dip into the beaten egg, then press into bread crumb mixture. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded chicken strips onto baking sheets prepared with wire cooling racks.
  5. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve with reserved mustard sauce.

These are so much easier and tastier than any fried chicken tenders! They get very crispy and the honey mustard adds a nice sweetness.

These were so easy, so good! The honey mustard sauce was DEElish!

So easy and good. I made my own panko using some sour dough English muffins and baked on a rack at 425 convection for 10 minutes. Then turned them over and turned off the heat and left in the ...

It was bland and had a slightly musty taste that my husband nor I liked at all. I think the whole wheat flour was a mistake, and I found the sauce very strange tasting. Substituting a commercial...

These were very good but just a little on the bland side for our family. I think next time I'll try adding some garlic salt and perhaps even a dash of cayenne pepper to the breadcrumbs. I did ...

I followed the recipe pretty much 100% and it turned out really tasty (according to the husband!). I put into the oven for 15 mins, and then turned it over for another 5 mins. Will definitely co...

Only one side of my chicken got crispy. That was a big disappointment.
