Low FODMAP Chicken Tenders

  • Author: Em Schwartz, MS, RDN
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x
  • Diet: Low Lactose


These baked Low FODMAP Chicken Tenders are crunchy and made with just 3 ingredients. Dip these kid-friendly tenders in creamy maple mustard or your favorite FODMAP diet-friendly condiment.


  • 1 large egg
  • 2 cups cornflakes cereal, like Kellogg’s Corn Flakes (use gluten-free cornflakes or Corn Chex for gluten-free)
  • 1 (12-ounce) package chicken tenderloins (or chicken breast, cut into strips)


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Whisk egg in a shallow bowl. Place corn cereal in a ziptop bag and crush finely with a rolling pin. Pour crushed corn cereal onto a plate.
  3. Dip each chicken tender into egg and roll in corn cereal to coat. Place on the baking sheet and repeat. Discard any remaining corn cereal.
  4. Bake for 6 minutes. Flip, and cook for an additional 6 to 8 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked. Chicken is fully cooked when a food thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165°F.
  5. Serve warm with your favorite low FODMAP condiment.
