Dinner Tonight: Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders w/ Velveeta Shells and Cheese
For Breakfast I had a bowl of Kashi 7 Whole Grains Puffs. Ohh baby it's cold outside! Everyone knew our mild Winter wouldn't holdout the entire season but no one is ready for this. This morning it was 4 degrees with a wind chill of -7 degrees. The day was sunny all day and a high of 11 degrees but the wind chill kept it below zero all day. So nothing to do but stay in! Gave the bedroom a good cleaning, did a load of laundry and cleaned my computer desk. Amazing how much junk can accumulate on a computer desk! For dinner tonight it was Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders w/ Velveeta Shells and Cheese.
I wanted a hot meal but just didn't feel like putting a lot of effort in it. So when I was at Kroger yesterday I picked up a package of PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® - Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders. I have used these before but it's been a while. They come in a sealed package, you can freeze them or prepare them from fresh, I prepared them from fresh. All the Tenders are nice size and well seasoned, the amount of Breading is perfect. They are also gluten-free. They are 150 calories and 13 carbs per serving, 2 Tenders per serving.
To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. I used a small cookie sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed the foil with Pm Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I heated the Tenders for 8 minutes. Removed it from the oven and flipped the Tenders and heated them another 8 minutes. removed from the oven and let the Tenders cool for 3 minutes and they were ready to serve! As I said earlier, good breading and nicely seasoned. I baked 2 servings for my dinner. Served them with a side of JB'S Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce. Love all the sauces and rubs from JB Fat Boy.
For a side dish to go with the Tenders I prepared another easy to prepare item, Velveeta Shells and
