I always like to have some homemade chicken tenders accessible for my son’s lunch in a pinch. Every other week I’ll bake these tenders, divide them into small freezer bags, and freeze until I need them. I know it seems commonsensical, but sometimes the most practical solutions in the kitchen get overlooked. This would also be a great way to have chicken on hand if you’re dieting or simply love chicken wraps or salads!
I also love that I can whip this up in a matter of minutes, cover, and bake. DONE! And now you have a healthy, quick protein on hand.
I made these tenders at 8:30 in the morning the other day. The time of day had no effect on my son. He ran over to the plate before I could take any pictures and starting eating them!! Usually, he’ll eat two of them for lunch and I cut them into smaller, more manageable pieces. Not this time; he just took his fork, picked them up whole, and had a little appetizer before breakfast
On the days that lunch sneaks up on me, I just pull them out of the freezer and reheat them in the oven at 350 for about 7 to 10 minutes.
