Chicken Tenders Coated with White Cheddar Cheez-it

What to do when you have little time on your hands and your teenagers are screaming ” I am hungry”?!?! Most people would drive and get “Take out”, but at my house we look for things in the fridge to fix. Luckily I had some chicken, and all kinds of other stuffs in my fridge so I decided to fix some chicken tenders.

Ingredients for 2-3: 2 chicken breasts, 1/2 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp of pepper, 1 tsp of paprika, 3/4 cup of crumbs of white cheddar Cheez-it, 1 tsp of olive oil, salsa.

First we want to tenderize the meat so place a chicken breast on a roulpat. Fold the roulpat over the chicken and with a rolling pin, beat the chicken to even it out and flatten it. Remove the chicken from the roulpat and place it in a bowl. Repeat the same for the other chicken breast.

Then place the chicken on a cutting board and cut strips of chicken of about 1/2 to 1/3 inches thick. Place the strips in a large bowl, and add the salt, pepper, paprika, and olive oil and stir well to coat the chicken. Add the crumbs and stir to coat the chicken. Place the strips on a silpat that you would have previously placed on a perforated sheet and cook in a warm oven of 375 for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, flip the chicken strips and cook for another 3 minutes. To eat, accompany the chicken with tomato salsa. Et voila!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
