- Preheat oven to 350º F. Crush corn flakes by hand or lightly pulse in a food processor. Add to a lined baking sheet with breadcrumbs and toast until golden brown. Set aside for later. This is an optional step but makes your tenders crispier!
- Sautee diced onion over medium heat until fragrant. Set aside.
- Add cooked onions and the rest of the tenders ingredients to a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a sticky dough.
- Use a spoon to spoon a bit of dough onto the toasted crust. Roll the tender in the crust until completely coated.
