If you’re like me, you’re in a constant struggle to balance foods your kids will eat with foods your kids like.
Some will argue that if you never introduce fast food or junk food into a kid’s diet, they won’t prefer it. Because who doesn’t prefer crispy, crunchy, cheesy, salty, etc…?
But I haven’t found that to be true, nor do I live in that alternate universe where my kids have never been exposed to a chicken nugget or quarter-pound burger in the drive-through. Where is that alternate universe, anyway.
That said, I do TRY to limit fast food and junk food. However, my kids, ages 10 and 9, love them some chicken tenders.
This recipe, using boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets, on sale this week, is a baked version of their fast food favorite.
Crispy Chicken Tenders
Preparation Time: 15 minutes
1 1/4 cups Kellogg’s® Corn Flake Crumbs
5 cups Kellogg’s Corn Flakes®
1 to 1 1/2 lbs chicken breast fillets, cut in half lengthwise, rinsed
Rinse chicken tenders with cold water and coat with KELLOGG’S Corn Flake Crumbs. Place coated tenders on foil-lined baking sheet. Bake at 350° F about 25 minutes or until chicken is tender, no longer pink and juices run clear. For food safety, internal temperature of the chicken should reach at least 165º F. Serve warm with your favorite dipping sauce.
