Introduction:

We are headed to Vegas in a few weeks, so the hubs and I have been limiting  carbs (well trying to!) in preperation for fitting into “summer” clothing! So, I have been cooking lunch yummies to help us stay on track during the day.  These chicken fingers fit the bill perfectly! These are a delicious alternative to deep fried chicken tenders!

Resources:

Procurements:
  • 2 lbs chicken tenders
  • 3/4 C parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 T parsley, minced
  • 1 t oregano, dried
  • 1 t paprika
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • 1 t chili powder
  • 1/8 t cayenne pepper (I am a wimp, so add more if you like things spicy!)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t pepper
  • 1/4 C butter, melted
Operating Procedures:
 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line the baking sheet with a non-stick baking mat or parchment paper.  
 
Combine all dry ingredients. Melt butter in a small sauce pan and let cool slightly.

Dip each chicken tender in the melted butter then dredge in the seasoning mixture.

Lay on prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking time.
 
Remove from oven and let cool slightly before serving.  

Proposals:

This is a great rub for all different things! You can use it for grilled chicken, or you can leave out the parmesan cheese and add brown sugar for a great rib rub!

Closing Remarks:

Serve these hot with a side of steamed veggies or do like we do and serve them cold over a salad for lunch!
