Method

  1. The estimated total time to make this recipe is .
  2. Preheat oven to broil 550 degrees. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Spread chicken out onto baking pan. Stir all ingredients for the spice mix mixture together in a small bowl until it reaches the consistency of a thin paste. Toss chicken tenders in the seasoning, and spray evenly with cooking spray. Roast in preheated oven for 16-18 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through (no longer pink in the center of the thickest piece), and/or reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees. Sprinkle with an extra dash of paprika just before serving if desired (this will give the chicken a pretty pop of color and flavor, but isn’t needed). Enjoy.
  3. To Make the Dipping Sauce: Stir all ingredients for the dipping sauce together well in a small bowl while chicken is cooking. Serve alongside chicken tenders!
