Preheat the oven to 450°F. Line 2 sheet pans with foil and coat with olive oil.
Slice the chicken into strips about ½-inch thick. In a bowl, stir together the panko and 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and season with salt. Crack 2 eggs into a bowl, season with salt, and beat with a fork. Dredge each chicken strip in the eggs, letting any excess drip back into the bowl. Coat with the panko mixture, pressing gently to help the crumbs stick. Lay the chicken strips on one of the pans.
Bake until the chicken is crispy and golden on the bottom, 10 minutes. Flip the chicken and continue to bake until golden on the second side, 10 minutes longer. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Season with salt and grind generously with pepper.
Meanwhile, cut the parsnips into sticks about ¼-inch thick. Pile the parsnips on the other pan, drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with salt and pepper, and toss to coat. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes.
To make the harissa yogurt, in a small bowl, stir together the garlic yogurt and harissa.
Transfer the chicken tenders and parsnip fries to plates and serve warm, with the harissa yogurt for dipping.
Contains: milk, wheat.
Note: The chicken may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes.
