Recipe: Skinny (Gluten Free) UN-Fried Chicken

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 16-20 minutes
Yield: 5 servings
Serving size: 2 chicken tenders


  • ¾ cup Bisquick Gluten-Free Mix

  • ½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins (10 tenderloins)

  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten

  • 3 Tbsp butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a medium size bowl mix together Bisquick, cheese, paprika and salt together.

  2. Line a baking sheet with non-stick foil.

  3. Dip chicken into eggs then toss in Bisquick mixture. To avoid uncoated fingerprint spots on the chicken I usually shake the egg covered tender around in the bowl, then use a dry hand to shovel the Bisquick® mixture on bare spots. Place it on the baking sheet. Repeat process for the 9 remaining tenders.

  4. Drizzle melted butter over the chicken (about a ½ tsp on each).

  5. Bake for 8 minutes. Flip chicken and bake for an additional 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center.
