You can’t go wrong with a sweet and spicy sauce and crispy chicken tenders. This sauce is amazingly sweet, spicy and tangy. Made with soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, sriracha, hoisin sauce and sesame oil. I coat the chicken tenders in panko breadcrumbs to make them super crispy on the outside.

You can make these chicken tenders as spicy or sweet as you’d like. If you like a little more heat (like me) add some more crushed red pepper flakes and sriracha.

These Sweet and Spicy Asian Chicken Tenders are super easy to make.  They take less than 30 minutes to make from start to finish! I cut the chicken breast into thin tenders then pound them with a mallet to be a bit thinner. This helps the chicken to cook evenly and stay juicy!

How to make Sweet and Spicy Asian Chicken Tenders

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Season the panko breadcrumbs with salt and pepper.
  • Starting with the flour and ending with breadcrumbs, dip the chicken into the flour, egg and breadcrumbs.
  • Line the chicken tenders on a baking sheet covered with a silicon baking mat or aluminum foil.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until fully cooked and golden brown.
  • Meanwhile whisk together hoisin sauce, sweet chili sauce, garlic, low sodium soy sauce, sesame oil and Sriracha in a medium bowl.
  • Toss the cooked chicken with the Sweet and Spicy Asian Sauce.
  • Serve immediately with crushed red pepper flakes and sesame seeds if desired!
