2. Prepare the Honey Mustard Sauce 

In a small bowl, mix together honey, Dijon mustard, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Adjust the amounts according to your taste preferences. This will be your marinade for the chicken tenders.

3. Marinate the Chicken 

Place the chicken tenders in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag. Pour the honey mustard sauce over the chicken, making sure each piece is well coated. Allow the chicken to marinate for at least 15-30 minutes to absorb the flavors.

4. Prepare the Breadcrumb Coating  

If you're using breadcrumbs for added crunch, you can mix them with a bit of olive oil and seasoning in a separate bowl.

5. Coat the Chicken  

If you're using breadcrumbs, take each marinated chicken tender and coat it evenly with the breadcrumb mixture. If you prefer not to use breadcrumbs, you can skip this step.

6. Arrange on Baking Sheet

7. Bake in the Oven 

Transfer the baking sheet to the preheated oven and bake the chicken tenders for 15-20 minutes, or until they are cooked through and golden brown on the outside. You can also flip them halfway through cooking for even browning.
