Spicy Baked Chicken Tenders With a Garlic Basil Aioli

45 mins (prep 20, cooking 25)
17 ingredients
4-6 servings
Now, I think everyone likes chicken fingers or tenders, but I get tired of those made the traditional way with the seasoned bread crumbs, parmesan cheese and a marinara sauce for dipping. So, I tried to come up with something a bit spicy and a unique dipping sauce for a unique taste. This is my version. Spicy seasoning, and the panko makes it a bit lighter. Baked vs fried and then the aioli is to me what sets this apart. Since this is finger food, I love to serve this with fresh corn on the cob, and my salad cups. Basically a small chopped salad served in a small lettuce cup. This just makes it a great easy "finger food" dinner.
