Sometimes you just need to have fun and that's what this recipe is all about. Chicken tenders are one of my favorite meals to order out at restaurants but they are insanely easy to make at home too. Let's have some fun though and kick it up a notch by adding some color and funky fruity flavor in the mixture. Everyone in your family will love these Crunchy Rainbow Baked Chicken Tenders ... even adults!
You can buy Perdue Harvestland Chicken Breast Tenderloins online at PerdueFarms.com/mantripping. As someone who grew up on the East Coast, I haven't had access to the brand's products in a long while but now you can order them along with other products direct from their family farmers. Perdue has always represented quality and a break from the commoditization of "cheap chicken". Perdue Harvestland chickens are raised cage-free and fed an all-vegetarian diet. They never receive antibiotics, hormones or steroids and are hatched, raised, and harvested in the United States by family farmers. You are what you eat and that's why I love supporting this brand.
Crunchy Rainbow Baked Chicken Tenders Recipe Ingredients:
This recipe is insanely simple and can be whipped up as a quick and easy family dinner or just a fun snack. Feel free to scale the ingredients accordingly.
- 6 Perdue Harvestland Chicken Tenderloins
- 2-3 cups of Fruity Pebbles (yes, this is Gluten-Free!)
- salt and pepper
- 2 eggs
Whip the eggs, salt, and pepper together in a medium-sized bowl and dunk the chicken tenderloins. Some people may prefer to separate the egg yolk from the whites here since that will reduce cholesterol and avoid a yellow "egg" look to the skin.
After the chicken tenderloins are coated in the egg wash, place them in a pan filled with the Fruity Pebbles cereal and press the chicken into the pieces to ensure that they stick and completely cover the tenderloins.
Once the chicken pieces are completely covered, place on a large baking rack that you have applied non-stick cooking spray to.
Place the chicken tenderloins into the pre-heated oven and bake at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven, serve, and enjoy!
While this recipe is certainly not for everyone, food should be fun and this certainly fits that requirement. Plus, for those with gluten allergies, this can be a welcome change of pace where they can try something awesome with no feeling that they are sacrificing.
