Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
