DH brought home uncooked, pre-breaded chicken tenders from his job. They're frozen in a bag. What temp should I bake them at in the oven? 375 for 20 minutes maybe? Thanks!

 I'd bump it up to 400 for about 20 minutes.

350 til they are no longer pink inside. 20 min is a good guess. Maybe 30. My chicken always takes way longer to cook than it should though.

I don't know and neither does DH. He says they fry them at his restaurant but I don't see why they couldn't be baked. We don't have a deep fryer.

Are they Tyson? Ben e Keith? Us foods?

Usually at work if we bake them we toss them in a convection oven at 350 for 20 mins or until 165 internal temp.

You can also pan fry them for a few minutes just to get them crispy and then put them on a cookie tray and go about 15-20 minutes. Key is internal temp of 165. Usually convention to house hold oven is 350 convection equals 375 household.

This is probably the best idea - a combo of a pan fry then into the oven OR other way around (bake for 20 minutes then crsisp them up in a skillet fry  - you do not need a deep fryer just some oil and a skillet!! If you made then already - how's they turn out??

Chicken is an extremely nutritious and versatile food that is rich in iron, magnesium, potassium and zinc; 3 oz. have approximately 24 g of protein. If eaten skinless, it contains less than 2 g of fat. Many varieties of chicken come frozen, pre-breaded, pre-seasoned and ready to cook, which allows you to prepare a healthy meal without much fuss. Add a garden salad and brown rice for a well-rounded lunch or dinner.

COOK IN THE OVEN

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.

Step 2

Arrange the desired amount of chicken onto a baking sheet. Arrange the chicken so that there is space around all of the pieces in order to make sure that all sides get cooked evenly.

Step 3

Place the baking sheet into your oven and cook for 18 to 22 minutes.

Step 4

Remove the pre-breaded chicken from the oven when it is finished cooking. Allow it to cool for two to three minutes before serving.

COOK IN A MICROWAVE OVEN

Step 1

Arrange the desired amount of chicken onto a microwavable safe plate.

Step 2

Place the plate of chicken into your microwave and cook on high. Cooking time will depend on your particular microwave, however, guidelines to follow are one minute, 30 seconds to two minutes for one chicken fillet, two minutes to two minutes, 30 seconds for two chicken fillets and three minutes for three chicken fillets. The chicken should be completely thawed and hot all the way through when finished cooking.

Step 3

Remove the pre-breaded chicken from the microwave when finished cooking. Allow the chicken to cool for one to two minutes before serving.
