  • 500 grams/1 pound Chicken tenderloins note 1
  • ½ cup Freshly grated parmesan note 2
  • 3 teaspoons Smoked paprika
  • 1 ½ teaspoon Garlic salt note 3
  • 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano note 4
  • ¼ cup Cornflake Crumbs note 5
  • 1 medium Egg
  • ¼ cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Plain flour


  • Olive Oil Spray


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C/350 degrees F
  • Arrange 3 medium sized bowls on bench in this order. First bowl – plain flour, Second bowl –- whisk the egg and milk until combined, Third bowl - parmesan, paprika, garlic salt, oregano and cornflake crumbs.
  • One at a time, coat tenderloin in flour, shaking off excess. Dip into the egg wash. Press firmly both sides into the parmesan crumb.
  • Spray a roasting tray with oil and arrange the tenderloins flatly so they aren’t touching. Add another quick oil spray on top
  • Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let rest for 5 minute out of the oven (it will continue to cook a little)
  • Serve with a your favourite dipping sauce.


  1. Chicken: The same amount of chicken breast can e used instead of chicken tenderloin. Cut breast into big chunky lengths. (about 3 cm wide by 8 – 10 cm long)
  2. Parmesan: Fresh is best, but you can also use the pre-packaged variety that’s already shredded. I’d recommend avoiding the dried parmesan you find in the pasta aisle.
  3. Dried Herbs: other herbs to include may be thyme or rosemary. Add a teaspoon of each, or substitute with oregano to create a new flavour combination.
  4. Salt: Sea salt or onion salt can be used instead of garlic salt
  5. Crumbs: Regular breadcrumbs can be substituted for cornflake crumbs.
  6. Serves:  this recipe will serve  3 people as a main, with a side of veg.  If being served on its own as a main with dipping sauce, its more suitable for two people.
