Remember how we were cleaning out our pantry items? This one is a pretty awesome idea, I am even impressed with myself.
You see I have this issue. If I am going to eat a salad, it needs to be covered in croutons for me to fight through it. Therefore, I find myself with quite a few leftover crouton bags. So instead of eating one huge carb salad, I processed those croutons into bread crumbs and used them to coat chicken tenders.
I had garlic and butter croutons (because duh) so these were really flavorful and it provided a lot more oomph than the standard panko breading I usually do.
Because who doesn’t want garlic and butter chicken tenders?
- chicken tenders - 8
- garlic croutons - 2 cups
- panko bread crumbs - 1/2 cup
- flour - 2 cups
- eggs - 2, beaten
- salt and pepper - 1 teaspoon each
