Creamy chicken bake is one of my family’s favorites and I want to share it with you. Almost no prepping needed. A bit of chopping, opening two cans and simple seasoning with herbs and spices you already have in your pantry. It’s that easy.

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO COOK CHICKEN TENDERS?

This depends on the recipe. You can pan fry seasoned chicken tenders in butter or olive oil.

If you are making breaded chicken fingers, the best way is to deep fry them.

To make a casserole or bake, you can simply place them inside a baking dish, cover them with gravy or sauce and bake them in the oven.

HOW LONG SHOULD CHICKEN BE COOKED TO KEEP IT MOIST?

I have a few rules of my own, but they are not infallible. It’s always important to check the chicken for doneness before serving it. That said, II almost always follow them:

  • For bone-in chicken pieces, one hour at 350 F
  • Whole boneless chicken breasts or chicken thighs: 50 – 60 mins at 350 F
  • Chicken tenders: 45 mins at 350 F

If you want to be certain the chicken is cooked through, use a meat thermometer. The internal temperature should be 160 F.

CAN I BAKE FROZEN CREAMY CHICKEN?

Contrary to popular belief, according to the USDA you can cook frozen chicken but it takes one and a half times longer than it takes to cook thawed chicken. And it is not recommended to do it in the slow cooker or in the microwave.
