  • Mixing bowls
  • Whisk
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Baking sheet
  • Parchment paper
  • Tongs
  • Wire rack


  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon cannabis-infused olive oil
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • Cooking spray or additional cannabis-infused olive oil for drizzling


  • Marinate the Chicken: In a mixing bowl, combine the chicken tenders, buttermilk, and cannabis-infused olive oil. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to overnight, to marinate
  • Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place a wire rack on top
  • Prepare the Coating: In a shallow dish, mix the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and black pepper
  • Prepare the Egg Wash: In another shallow dish, whisk the eggs until well beaten
  • Coat the Chicken: Remove the chicken tenders from the buttermilk marinade. Dip each tender first into the egg wash, allowing any excess to drip off, then coat it thoroughly with the breadcrumb mixture. Press the breadcrumbs onto the chicken to ensure they adhere well
  • Bake the Chicken: Arrange the coated chicken tenders on the wire rack on the prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray with cooking spray or drizzle with additional cannabis-infused olive oil to help them crisp up
  • Cook Until Golden: Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until the chicken tenders are golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C)
  • Serve: Remove the chicken tenders from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. Enjoy with your favorite dipping sauces


  • Adjust the amount of cannabis-infused olive oil according to your desired potency and tolerance level.
  • For a gluten-free version, use gluten-free breadcrumbs.
  • Serve with a variety of dipping sauces like honey mustard, ranch, or BBQ sauce for added flavor.
  • Leftover tenders can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven to maintain crispiness.
