For one dinner last week, I did something fun for me the kids.

I love using my compartmentalized trays. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while or know me in “real” life, you know much I love cafeterias. I know how weird it is. Anyways. I found some chicken tenders at Trader Joe’s. They were individually frozen (although packaged together) and it was really helpful, when pulling them out one by one. I was able to get two meals out of the package (with leftovers each time) and it was only a little over $6. The tenders were void of any fat, which was such a time saver for me, and they were all about the same size. I made a gluten-free breading of crushed cornflakes, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. I dredged them in the breading after their egg bath, and baked for only a few minutes. Easy peasy! I served them with creamy, homemade mashed potatoes (using almond milk and soy butter), seasoned corn, and a delicious fruit salad. I’ve made variations on this meal before and I now know it’s my family’s favorite. They clean their plates and ask for more. It’s so nice to feed them something homemade and healthy and have them love it.

Review Result: I will definitely be getting these tenders again and again from TJ’s!

I hope you make it and enjoy!
