I just love easy recipes, don't you?

For easy chicken recipes, our garlic chicken tenders are to die for!  They are crispy and crunchy on the outside with the right amount of garlic seasoning and so moist and juicy on the inside. The best part is, they're baked!  

The pièce de resistance would definitely be our Cranberry Mustard!  It's tangy, it's sweet, and the perfect dipping sauce for the chicken tenders, plus, no mixing required.  All you need is to open a jar, and serve.  It doesn't get much easier.

Baked Chicken Tenders with Cranberry Mustard Recipe

I made a double batch of these beauties recently for dinner, and my family went crazy over this recipe.  I had to hide the leftovers from my family, (I don't usually "hide food".  It sounds kind of weird, but I felt the need to do so this time) because I needed a "beauty shot" for this blog...afterwards, when the kiddos were at school...I had the "hidden" leftover dinner for lunch.  Yay me, but sorry kiddos).

You should try this recipe!

Ingredients

Preparation 

*If using boneless chicken breast, slice the breasts vertically (halve the chicken breasts by slicing the chicken breast  in half and pound the chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap until 1/2" thick).  

Prepare the flour/bread crumb station.  Arrange three shallow containers (I used pie plates) side by side, with the first container containing the flour, the second containing the beaten eggs, and the third containing the ground rice Chex, Cherchies® Garlic Seasoning, and pepper (mixed together).

Forks or tongs work best for this next step.  First, dip both sides of the cutlets into the flour, shaking off the excess.  Next, cover both sides of the cutlets with the egg, and then the seasoned cereal crumbs.

Brush a jelly roll (or 13x9) pan with Olive oil.  Place coated chicken in pan and spray chicken with cooking spray.

Bake chicken at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, or until done (juices come out clear when pierced with a fork or knife).

Serve Cherchies® Cranberry Mustard as a delightful dipping sauce, and add our Strawberry Spinach Salad for a quick and easy meal.  Dinner is served!
