Make your own chicken tenders with this easy and simple recipe in 35 minutes instead of eating the loaded with fat and calories restaurant ones. Our chicken tenders are oven baked and healthy. We use potato flakes instead of panko breadcrumbs. They are a great source of protein, calcium, selenium, vitamin D, B6, B12 and minerals such as zinc, iron and copper.
You can dip them in your favorite dressing. We usually eat them with a side of salad or potato puree. Chicken is a lean meat so it is a great protein ingredient to include in your daily diet.
