Everyone loves chicken tenders!  Adults and especially children enjoy the flavors, crunch and tastiness of these family favorites.  However, in the traditional recipes, they are coated with white flour and deep fried.  As the Fresh Chef, I specialize in making the “Best Makeovers” of your favorite comfort foods.   My version is baked, instead of fried, which saves you hundreds of calories and is much easier to digest.  One of the best ways to prevent heart disease is to cut back on fried foods!  Try my tasty, crunchy treats and no one will know the difference.  They are highly seasoned and your family and friends will love them.
