  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Combine the flour, Mexican seasoning and onion powder in a shallow bowl. Place the yoghurt and corn flakes in separate bowls.

    Coat each piece of chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off excess. Dip in yoghurt, then in corn flakes, turning to coat. Transfer to the lined tray and bake for 25-30 mins or until golden and cooked through.

    Meanwhile, to make the avocado dip, place the avocado and lemon juice in a small bowl and use a fork to mash until smooth. Season. Add the tomato and stir to combine.

    Place chicken tenders and avocado dip in separate airtight containers. Store in the fridge for up to 2 days.
