What is Everything Bagel Seasoning made up of?

Everything Bagel seasoning is a mixture of common ingredients most people probably have in their spice cabinet right now. The most common recipe includes poppy seeds, toasted sesame seeds, dried garlic, dried onion, and salt. Typically, all the ingredients are measured out evenly, except for the salt, which is slightly less.

What is panko?

Panko is a Japanese break crumbs. They are made from white bread without the crusts. This results in a lighter, airier bread crumb that absorbs less grease and stays crispier for longer than their traditional counterparts. Thats what makes it so great for baking in recipes like this.

Ingredients for our Everything Bagel Chicken Bake:

  • Panko Bread Crumbs
  • Everything Bagel Seasoning
  • Chicken Tenderloins
  • Butter

How to make our Everything Bagel Chicken Bake:

Preheat the oven to 400 F. In a shallow bowl, melt the butter completely. In a separate bowl, combine the panko crumbs and the Everything Bagel Seasoning. (If you want to make your own seasoning, I have a great recipe right <HERE> )

A white bowl of melted butter next to a bowl of panko and everything bagel seasoning with raw chicken beside it.

Rinse and pat the chicken tenderloin until they are dry. One at a time, dip and fully coat the chicken in butter, then the seasoning mix. Place on a greased cooking sheet. Repeat until all chicken is gone.

Occassionally, the butter can run out before the meat. If so, just melt a little more and continue until all the chicken is on the cooking sheet.

The bowl of butter empty, the panko seasoning almost gone, with the raw chicken coated in seasoning on a baking sheet.

Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken is at least 165 F.

Remove from oven and allow it to sit for 3-5 minutes. Serve and enjoy!
