Chicken is probably the most versatile and well-liked meats in America. It’s a staple for most households – including ours. I’ll admit this recipe for homemade baked chicken tenders takes a little more time than popping a few frozen tenders into the oven or going to the drive-thru. The outcome is much more delicious and wholesome, though.
If you read the label on some popular brands of frozen chicken tenders or nuggets, they appear to fit the bill for a real food lifestyle. However, homemade is always better than mass-produced for many reasons. I’ll leave out the details in order to keep this post appetizing.
Feel free to adjust the spices based on your family’s preference (make a spicy version with crushed red pepper or cayenne!) or what you have on hand at the time. Paired with a vegetable or salad, this makes a great dinner for adults and kids.
The leftovers make a great lunch the next day, too. Chicken salad. Chicken tacos. Chicken sandwich. Now I’m starting to sound like Bubba from “Forrest Gump”, so I’ll stop.
