Combine chicken tenders, buttermilk, salt and cayenne in a large re-sealable plastic bag. Refrigerate for at least two hours to marinade.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.

For breading, combine flour, paprika and salt in a shallow bowl. Whisk egg and two tablespoons buttermilk in another bowl.

Mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, seafood seasoning and garlic powder in a third bowl.

Drain chicken and discard marinade. Dredge chicken in flour mixture and shake off the excess.

Dip into egg mixture, and turn in breadcrumb mixture, pressing down to make sure the breading adheres to the chicken tender. Place the crumb-coated tenders on the prepared baking sheet, and give each side a good spray of olive oil.

Bake in the preheated oven (flip halfway through) until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear. It should be 15 to 18 minutes, depending on the thickness. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees.
