"A childhood favorite, these flavorful chicken tenders are made healthy by baking on a wire rack for crispiness and using whole wheat flour and breadcrumbs!"

  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.
