  • 1/4 cup ground flax*
  • 2 Tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Grab two small bowls.  In one, mix olive oil and honey.  In the other bowl, combine ground flax, basil and sea salt.
  3. Cut the chicken into strips using kitchen scissors (or a knife).
  4. Dip chicken strips (one at a time) into oil-honey mixture, coating each side.  Then transfer the chicken to the dry mixture, coating each side.  Lastly, place chicken tenders on a parchment lined baking sheet.
  5. Bake chicken tenders at 375 degrees in the middle rack of your oven for 20 minutes (or until cooked through).
