What would you do with a bag of chicken tenders?

I've got a gi-normous bag of frozen chicken tenders, sneering at me from the freezer.

What would you do with them? I'm cooking for one and like finger-food type dishes, nothing complicated for sure. Got any good recipes?

Make Buffalo chicken tenders - deep fry or bake them until done (I prefer deep fry) then coat in a mixture of Frank's Hot Sauce with butter. YUMMY!

Also, you could thaw them and put them on skewers and grill them with veggies - Chicken Kabobs.

Or boil them until done - chop them up and make chicken salad.

chop 'em up with some veggies for a stir fry with some soy sauce & ginger. Yum!

Or make "pizza bites". Marinate some in italian dressing, chop them into bite size pieces. Cook them in a pan or on the GF grill. Then put a little pizza sauce over them and some shredded cheese, a few strips of fresh basil and pop under the broiler.

Happy Cooking

I like to brush them with olive oil, and sprinkle dry Italian dressing mix over them. Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until done. These are great! My children love them dipped in vidalia onion dressing. They warm up nicely too, although I can hardly make enough for 6 of us. let alone leftovers!

Put pecans, parmesan cheese, s/p, in food processor until it makes a fine meal. Dip tenders in melted butter and coat with pecan mixture; fry as for "regular" fried chicken. Dip in ranch or mock honey mustard (1/2 mayo, 1/2 sour cream, dash of dijon, little splenda)

Cook tenders in a little butter with a squeeze of lemon. Add garlic to taste. Add mushroooms. When browned, add a handful of grated parmesan cheese and a couple of tablespoons of cream. Stir till cheese melts; serve. You can thin the sauce with a little water if necessary. I don't have amount for any of this, just kinda toss till it looks right.

Cook them up in a pan with some butter and spices and use them for any of Linda Sue's recipes! That's what I do. I always buy a huge bag of them everytime I go to BJ's. The possibilities are endless!

What I like to do with them is cook them (frozen) in the crock pot. Put one layer down to cover the bottom of the crockpot, then put salsa on it, then lay tenders down for next layer & put salsa on it, & repeat until you are to the top. Cook all day (or all night whichever you prefer) & when it's done, serve a couple of tenders with some of the salsa (sauce). I also like to mix some sour cream with the sauce. YUM! This would be good to take to an potluck gathering or, if you are like me, enough to eat on all week!!

Chicken Nuggets

I take the chicken tender strips, cut them into nugget size pieces. Dip in some egg and "bread" them with parm cheese, and some seasonings. Fry 'em up. Makes some tasty cheesy chicken nuggets that are finger friendly.

I dip them in a mix of mustard/splenda and vinegar - almost as good as honey mustard.

MMMMMMMM

I've gotten them at Super Wal-Mart & at Food-4-Less. They were pretty big bags in the same area as the skinless, boneless chicken breasts. You could probably do the same thing with the chicken breasts, just slice them up before cooking them.

I buy chicken tenderloins in a big bag from Costco. My favorite way to cook them is to saute them in olive oil w/a liberal amount of Montreal Chicken Seasoning, chopped red bell peppers, mushrooms, and a can of chopped green chiles. When they're getting close to done, I pour shredded Mexican cheeses on top. I like to overcook it all just a bit so that the cheese and chiles get all brown and crunchy. I top this with sour cream, Frank's hot sauce, and sometimes a few slices of avocado. This is one of my favorite meals ever.
