4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1 large egg

  • ½ cup panko breadcrumbs, preferably whole-wheat

  • 1 tablespoon everything bagel seasoning (see tip)

  • 1 pound chicken tenders

  • ¼ cup grapeseed or canola oil

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • teaspoon ground pepper

  • 5 ounces mixed baby greens


  1. Place flour in a shallow dish and lightly beat egg in another shallow dish. Mix breadcrumbs and everything bagel seasoning in a third shallow dish. Dredge chicken tenders in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs.

  2. Heat grapeseed (or canola) oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F, about 7 minutes total, adjusting the heat as needed to prevent burning.

  3. Whisk olive oil, vinegar, mustard, honey and pepper in a large bowl. Add greens and toss to coat. Serve the greens topped with the chicken.


Look for Everything Bagel Seasoning in the spice aisle at well-stocked supermarkets or make your own at home. To make your own seasoning, combine 1 tablespoon each dried minced garlic, dried minced onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and salt with 1 1/2 teaspoons ground pepper. Store in an airtight jar or other container for up to 3 months. Stir well to recombine after storing.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
