You can either make this Everything Bagel Seasoning yourself or buy it!

We have a recipe for the homemade version on that is handy to have on hand. I actually used to buy the Trader Joe’s version, but now buy the large economy size of Everything Bagel Seasoning at Costco as it’s inexpensively priced around $5 at my store for 11.5 oz.

It includes a mix of sesame seeds, poppy seeds, dried garlic, onion, and salt that can be added to a variety of foods including this cheese ball appetizer, avocado toast, and air fryer bagels. YUM!

Like my pull-down spice organizer from The Container Store? It’s perfect for higher cabinets and I love using it to organize large and small spice containers. Here’s a similar one via to purchase online.

Tips for making the best Everything Bagel Chicken Tenders:

I like to stack a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet pan when making anything breaded like these chicken tenders! It helps them come out crispy and evenly cooked.

Spraying the chicken tenders with coconut oil spray results in crispy, browned breaded chicken tenders!

Use chicken tenders for this idea, or cut raw boneless chicken breasts into thin long tenders first. I actually got  chicken tenders in my last Butcher Box order that I used for this recipe. They are organic and really yummy!

I have made this using traditional breadcrumbs and panko breadcrumbs. Both are delicious so choose your preference or use what you have on hand.

Crispy baked chicken tenders seasoned with Everything Bagel Seasoning is a meal the whole family will love!


3/4 cup panko style or traditional breadcrumbs

1/4 cup Everything Bagel seasoning

2 pounds raw chicken tenders

2 eggs

coconut oil spray



Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Stack a metal cooling rack on top of a baking sheet pan.


In a small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs and Everything Bagel seasoning together.


In another small bowl, whisk the eggs together.


Dredge each chicken tender in the egg mixture first, and then coat with the breading. Place them on the pan. Spray each side well with the cooking spray.


Bake for about 16-18 minutes until browned and fully cooked. Chicken tenders are cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. I use an instant-read thermometer to check.
