Cool Ranch Chicken Tenders


I get a lot of questions about what type/brand of chicken I buy. My favorite brand is Tyson ® Fresh Chicken. I love it because it is all natural* without added hormones or steroids**. It is delivered within days of leaving the farm, so I know it is fresh. It's the next best thing to being on the farm! Which is good, because I'm not a farm kind of girl.

Tyson Fresh Chicken has a great site for easy meal planning - PickTysonFresh.com. The site has convenient recipe ideas that save time and effort. My kind of recipes! I am always striving to make quick and easy meals. I don't want to spend all night in the kitchen. I want to have plenty of time to spend with Chicken Legs and the cats.

Put these chicken tenders on your menu ASAP! They are crazy good. We both took one bite and said "YUM!" The chicken is coated in a mixture of taco and ranch seasoning. It is so good. They tasted similar to Cool Ranch Doritos, but healthier. These chicken tenders are on the table in under 30 minutes. I had the chicken coated in the time the oven preheated and popped them in the oven for about 15 minutes. These were so good that I wished I had doubled the recipe so I had leftovers for lunch. I am already planning on making these again very soon!

  1. My favorite quick chicken recipe is to take boneless, skinless breasts, pound them evenly, season with McCormick Roasted Garlic Seasoning and a little bit of Liquid Smoke and then put them on my George Foreman. I eat them plain or put them in salads or whatever crosses my mind.

  16. My favorite quick chicken "recipe" is to throw boneless skinless breasts in the crockpot with some sort of sauce/seasoning- BBQ, Italian dressing, spaghetti sauce, taco seasoning- whatever I have on hand! We normally shred the chicken and eat in wraps.

  38. I cook up a bunch of chicken tenders by browning them in a pan and then dusting them with Old Bay Seasoning and sticking that in the oven to finish. Serve over rice.

  46. You can't beat boneless chicken breasts when you need a quick dinner. I have a Le Creuset grill pan that does a nice job with them, either marinated and grilled as-is, or cut into chunks and skewered with veggies (onion, cherry tomato, mushrooms, zucchini, whatever) for a quick kebab. Either way, all it needs is a salad and some rice and it's an easy dinner in no time.
