These crunchy on the outside, tender on the inside chicken breast tenders with a hint of lime and honey are requested again and again at our house.
Hey friends! Today I’m excited to share this honey lime chicken recipe by my friend, Mary, at Barefeet in The Kitchen,
I asked Mary if I could share her Crunchy Honey Lime Chicken and I wasn’t at all surprised when she graciously agreed.
Ingredients for Honey Lime Chicken Crunchy Goodness
- All purpose flour
- Chili powder
- Kosher salt
- Black Pepper
- Boneless skinless chicken
- Bread crumbs
- Olive oil or your favorite cooking oil
Can I Make This Recipe In a Skillet?
You sure can.
It is delicious whether you bake the chicken in the oven, or you cook it on the stove-top in a covered skillet turning to prevent burning. Oven-baked I my preference but if you give it a try in the skillet, let me know.
How do you know when your honey lime chicken tenders are done?
The tenders should be beautiful golden brown crunchiness on the outside. And always make sure that the largest chicken tender is cooked to 165 degrees.
Want a Lower Carb Version?
Low carb alert: you don’t need the bread crumbs egg or milk. Toss the chicken in the rest of the ingredients and bake on baking sheet. In addition, cooking it this way you are holding on to all of the goodness but getting rid of calories and carbs.
