Healthier Chicken Tenders Recipe This Holiday Season
Posted Dec 29 2010 8:09am
Last night I made a healthier version of chicken tenders at home. I love when I can figure out a way to make a classic not-so-good for you meal into a healthier one. It just brings me some satisfaction. These chicken tenders are so good and crunchy! I used whole wheat panko breadcrumbs in this recipe, but you could also use finely chopped almonds or walnuts to “bread” the chicken. Either way, serve them up with some fresh vegetables of your choice. check out on Health Food
Laurel’s Chicken Tenders
2 organic chicken breasts Extra virgin olive oil 1 cup whole wheat panko breadcrumbs 3/4 cup whole wheat flour 2 organic eggs (beaten) Honey Salt and pepper
Cut the chicken breasts into tenders (about the same size and thickness). Mix the flour with a little salt and pepper and put on a small plate. Beat the eggs and put them on a second plate. Put the breadcrumbs on a third plate. check out on Health Food
Roll each chicken tender in the flour, then the egg, and finally, in the breadcrumbs. Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a sauté pan on medium heat. Cook the tenders about 2-3 minutes on each side and cover with a lid for the last 30 seconds to ensure they’re cooked through. Drizzle a little honey on top while they’re still hot. check out on Health Food
Serves 2 or 3 (depending on the size of the chicken breast).
