I can’t believe it has been nearly two years since I posted here. Time flies. It’s not like I haven’t been cooking, I guess I’ve been too busy or too preoccupied to post.

I made these chicken tenders tonight though, and they were so good I thought I should document it. I found this recipe for Parmesan Crusted Chicken Tenders through a search on Pinterest for homemade chicken strips.

I used Foster Farms Simply Raised chicken tenders. I followed the recipe pretty closely, although I used gluten free bread crumbs with Italian seasoning and shredded parmesan instead of grated. I also added a few red pepper flakes to give it some zip and then a couple of teaspoons of Bragg’s Organic Herb Sprinkles (which I love, btw, and use often in everything). Otherwise, I cooked it just like the recipe said. At first I thought, why fry before baking, but it truly worked well and the tenders are so moist and flavorful. I didn’t make the buttermilk ranch the recipe suggested. I was just going to dip them in store-bought dressing, but then when I was at Fred Meyer a sampling station lured me into buying some of this Boars Head spicy mayo so I dipped in that and yeah, yum!

Anyway, if you want a quick and tasty chicken strip/tender recipe, I highly recommend this one.
