Easy Corn Tortilla Chicken Tenders
I have distinct memories of my mom using greasy potato chips to coat chicken breast to make the most delicious chicken tenders ever. Now, being a mom myself, I realize how brilliant that was. Why not cover a healthy source of protein with a bit of mouthwatering, salty chips to help your kids actually eat dinner?
Fast forward to now. Something tells me it’s frowned upon to coat anything with the contents of that yellow bag of not-so-healthy potato chips. While this is true, there is nothing I love more than chicken tenders dipped in ranch so I needed to create a healthier version than my mom’s old go-to. Enter Shagbark Seed and Mill. They are a local Ohio company just a short drive away from where I live and they have the cleanest ingredients: organic corn, water, sunflower oil, salt, and lime. THAT’S IT! Why not put these chips to work to create a marriage between mexican tortilla chips and southern “fried” chicken?
This recipe was so easy and provided the crispiest chicken tenders I’ve ever made. Both my husband and my son asked for seconds.
Pair this with Tessemae Creamy Ranch dressing for a dipping sauce and it’s a match made in healthy food heaven.
