  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Place a wire rack on a baking sheet lined with foil. Coat with cooking spray.
  • Place the whole wheat flour in a medium bowl. In a shallow container, whisk together the egg, hummus and paprika. In a separate shallow container, combine the panko breadcrumbs, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Working with one chicken tender at a time, dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off the excess. Next, dip in the egg mixture until the chicken is coated. Lastly, roll the chicken in the breadcrumb mixture, completely coating the outside.
  • Transfer the chicken tenders to the prepared wire rack.
  • Lightly coat the chicken tenders with cooking spray. Bake until the chicken is just cooked through and the breadcrumbs are starting to brown, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
  • Serve with tzatziki sauce or plain yogurt mixed with paprika.
