Garlic Crouton Chicken Tenders

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?

Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Preheat the oven to 350. Process the croutons in a food processor until they are coarse crumbs. Dredge the chicken in the flour, shaking off the excess.  Then coat in the beaten eggs.  Let the excess drip off and coat in the crouton mixture (croutons, panko, salt and pepper.)  Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Dip with your favorite BBQ sauce.
