Greek Chicken Tenders

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 :)

DSC_3391On 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.

    Used Za’atar in place of Greek Seasoning…upped the lemon. SOOOO good!

    Hi,
    I like everything about this recipe except the Greek Seasoning. I just checked it out, and the ingredients include MSG, which I’d rather not give little one. Sounds like the main flavors are salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, onion powder and parsley, so maybe it could be approximated with your own spices.

    this probably sounds ridiculous but where do you find greek seasoning????
