Cool Ranch Chicken Tenders

Cool Ranch Chicken Tenders recipe - chicken tenders coated in taco seasoning and ranch - baked not fried! Ready in 15 minutes!! Can coat tenders and freeze uncooked for later.

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. One of my favorite quick chicken recipes is using leftover grilled or roasted chicken in my favorite fried rice.

  2. My favorite quick chicken recipe is chicken spaghetti. I cut the chicken breasts in bite-size pieces and stir fry, then toss with sauce and pasta.

  3. I have a chicken and dumpling recipe for the slow cooker that is my family's favorite!

  4. 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.

  5. My favorite quick chicken recipe is Sour Cream Chicken Bake (where the chicken is rolled in sour cream, then crushed Ritz crackers and baked in the oven).
