If you have kids in your home, chicken tenders or nuggets are a staple. I'm not complaining ... I love eating like a 5-year old. Give me chicken tenders with a yummy dipping sauce and a side of fruit and I'm good to go! But instead of buying the frozen ones in the shape of dinosaurs or picking up a 20 pack of McNotReallyChickenNuggets, this is a really easy and tasty way to fulfill the toddler palates in all of us.
I started experimenting with the seasoning for these chicken tenders last year when we were trying to make the change to a more paleo way of life. (And we don't have Chick-fil-A in Alaska so it was also an act of desperation.) I have personally enjoyed all the versions, but someone in this house usually finds something wrong them ... clearly just to drive me crazy. Too spicy, too bland, too much salt, too little something or other. But everyone was happy with this version, so I'm sticking with it! (But take it from this girl who is definitely NOT a recipe creator, play with the spices if your family is annoyingly picky?)
As I have said before, I'm terrible at meal prepping. But I'm awesome at doubling a recipe! I always buy two packs of chicken and make two pounds of these tenders ... and they don't last long. They're great by themselves or thrown on top of a salad. Or with dipping sauce and a side of fruit. And a cheap kids meal toy?
