  • 4 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 1/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan
  • 3/4 cup Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Brush 1 tablespoon of oil over 2 heavy large lined baking sheets.  Place the buttermilk in a large bowl.  Add the chicken tenders and stir to coat.  Let stand at least 15 minutes and up to 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, mash the garlic with the salt in a medium bowl.  Whisk the vinegar and then the remaining 1/2 cup of oil.  Season the vinaigrette, to taste, with pepper.  Transfer the vinaigrette to a small serving bowl.
Stir the Parmesan and bread crumbs in a pie dish.  Remove the chicken tenders from the buttermilk and dredge them in the bread crumb mixture to coat completely, pressing to adhere.  Arrange the coated chicken tenders on the prepared baking sheets, spacing evenly.  Drizzle the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil over the chicken tenders and bake until they are cooked through and golden brown.
Transfer the chicken tenders to a platter and serve the vinaigrette alongside for dipping.
