Baking Sheet with Rack
whole wheat flour
Panko Bread Crumbs
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place flour and 1 teaspoon seasoned salt in one shallow dish and mix well.
Whisk eggs and water together with the remaining teaspoon of salt in a second shallow dish.
Place panko bread crumbs in a third shallow dish.
Dip chicken into flour, tossing to coat. Shake off excess. Dip into the egg wash, and then finally into panko breadcrumbs, using your hands to help panko coat chicken strips.

I don't recommend regular bread crumbs for the breading on chicken tenders, as they will not yield a crispy oven baked chicken strip.
I find love to use whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour for the breading station, but any type of wheat flour will do.
