    Heathy Chicken Tenders.


    Chicken Tenders



    I think I stole this from some magazine, but i couldn't find any links so here goes.


    Ingredients

    -Eggs

    -Chicken Breast

    -Wheat germ.

    Preparation

    1: Preheat oven 375-400

    2: Spray oven pan/tray with non stick spray, olive oil etc.

    3: Empty 3 whole eggs into bowl, add in 3 more egg whites, mix until even consistency.

    4: Cover plate in wheat germ.

    5: Cut chicken into desired strip length

    Execution

    1: Dip chicken into egg

    2: Roll chicken in wheat germ.

    3: Place on tray, repeat^

    4: bake for 10-15mn, or untill crispy.

    5: Serve with favorite hot sauce, ranch, dijon, whatever and they're even good plain.





    Extremely easy, heathy and great for a snack on the go, or a whole meal. The best part is that its high protein, low carb, high fiber, and only healthy fats.

    If anybody wants some pics I'll snap some, I eat these alot

    It looks like KFC. Maybe you could try adding some secret herbs and spices.

    15 mins??

    Damn, I cook mine about 40-50 minutes. I suppose I think about whole breast when I cook the tenders.

    Ill try this during the holidays because my cousin-in-law just dumped 6 cases of wholesale tenders on us for 80 bucks, that was a complete steal....we have tenders by the bucket loads at my place.

    I know everyone at the processing plant here, in alabama, we have one of the largest processing and shipping plants in the u.s. So, I might be able to hook some of you guys up cheap, if I can come up with a way to ship them.

    If you cut them thin enough, like 2 finger width, they usually take about 15mn's to fully cook, then you can go from there on how crispy your like them. The egg holds in the moisture, so i havent made a dry batch yet.

    The secret was released on AM in '05 Chicken tenders.Yup thats right..(pics inside)

    I usually add 1/3c. Parmesan Cheese, Garlic Powder, Pepper and Italian Seasoning into the bread crumbs (Or wheat germ for this recipe)

    I make about 4lbs at once and work my way through them; the low-cal plum sauces still have 20cals/Tbsp

    Ya I saw that, but cooking bagels seems like a pain in the ass.

    Plus I like the nutritional profile of wheat germ, over bagels.

    i just made my second batch. I tried regular seasoning with blended oats instead of wheat germ first batch and on the second batch i used wheat germ, chicken powder, salt, onion powder.

    On the side, low carb ketchup and fat free ranch. Not as great tasting as regular ranch, but never the less it was amazing!
