Garlicky Parmesan Chicken Tenders

31 Jul

I promised to post some recipes from earlier in my foodie blog days while we transition to a new house. Yes! We found a house to move into, perhaps mid-to late October. I made these (sort of) last night but unfortunately had to work for 12 hours yesterday and dumped most of it on my husband. But I did get a lot of the prep work done.
Either way, these are a fairly quick weeknight meal, even if you can’t marinate the chicken for the full hour or so. And if you don’t have the Southwest seasoning, just use what seasoning flavor you prefer. Dinner!

One cannot make too many of these crispy chicken tenders! They are great as leftovers for lunch, and my daughter loves to pack these for her school lunch. Since these are baked, one of the tricks to getting them to come out crispy is to add crushed corn flakes to the bread crumb and cheese coating. And the wonderful garlic flavor comes from marinating the chicken for an hour in a garlic, milk and egg mixture. The marinade not only adds the garlic flavor, but it helps the coating stick to the chicken, and the meat comes out very juicy and tender. Serve these with some curly fries and a green salad, and you have an easy, healthy dinner!

    I think I have to go buy cornflakes. Congratulations on finding a new home, I’m sure you are excited.
