  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Set up your station: on the left, a shallow bowl with 1/3 of the mayo in it. Next, a plate with some of the tortilla chips crushed (see notes below). Finally, place the prepared baking pan on the right.

  3. Start coating the chicken tenders in the mayo. They should be covered but not goopy. Next, dredge the tenders in crushed tortilla chips, making sure to get both sides. Lay them on the baking sheet.

  4. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip and bake an additional 8-10 minutes. Chips should be starting to look golden.

  5. Serve warm with desired dipping sauces.

Recipe Notes

To crush tortilla chips. place in a plastic baggie and ensure it is sealed. Use a spoon to hit the chips and crush them. Ideally you don't want big chunks, but you don't want it to resemble the size of salt flakes - somewhere in-between is best.
