Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°F.

Step 2

Line a large baking sheet (cookie sheet with sides) with foil, and place wire rack on it. Spray rack with non-stick cooking spray.

Step 3

Place corn flakes in a large zip lock bag and crush just with your hands, so as not to pulverize it into powder, but to leave it kind of crunchy. Then place in a 8x8" baking dish. Add in panko bread crumbs and mix well.

Step 4

In another 8x8" baking dish or large bowl, mix eggs and milk with wire whisk.

Step 5

In a small bowl, mix together all the spices and herbs with a spoon till well mixed.

Step 6

In another 8x8" baking dish or large plate, combine flour and all BUT 1 teaspoon of the spices. Reserve the 1 teaspoon of spices to sprinkle on chicken when coated.

Step 7

Coat chicken tenders one at a time first in flour mixture, then egg mixture, then in corn flake mixture, and place on wire rack on baking sheet, leaving room between each piece. With fingers, sprinkle remaining 1 teaspoon of spice mixture on top of each piece of chicken.

Step 8

Place in preheated 425°F oven and bake for 20 minutes. Cut one open to make sure they're done inside before serving, since some ovens differ in temperature.

Step 9

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
