How to Make Chicken Tenders

Chicken tenders are one of the most popular food items in America -and they are not just for kids, adults love them too! If you want to see how to make chicken tenders at home without frying, check out this video.

My tender-loving family loves this recipe because the crust is everything you’d want on a chicken tender without frying, which means that now you don’t have to go out to eat to enjoy these!

This homemade recipe for chicken tenders is the perfect alternative to the frozen, pre-packaged tenders. They are made with real, unprocessed chicken, and you’ll have minimal cleanup because they are baked, not fried.

And thanks to the use of Panko breadcrumbs they are perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. What’s not to love?

But it gets better; these homemade chicken tenders can be frozen before cooking by placing them on a parchment-lined tray, feezing them, and then transferring them to a freezer-safe bag. Make sure to label the zip bag with the oven temperature and time (add about 2-3 minutes to cooking time if cooking them frozen) and you now have a recipe that yields leftovers for another meal.

It’s convenient, family-favorite recipes like this one that our Classic Meal Plan Members love. We make sure to include kid-friendly favorites like this recipe in the plans, plus prep-ahead directions, and storage notes.

How to Cook Spaghetti Squash

If you want to cook spaghetti squash but don’t know exactly how or cutting it is too difficult, check out this post and the helpful video right below.

I love substituting cooked spaghetti squash for traditional pasta to keep some of my meals lower carb. Kids love it too but cooked the right way.

Whether it’s in the microwave, baked, steamed or cooked in the slow-cooker, this veggie is rich in folic acid, potassium, and vitamin A! When cooked, the flesh comes out in strands that resemble angel hair pasta with a mild taste. Making it perfect for pairing with rich sauces like this Crockpot Tomato Sauce or Easy Alfredo Sauce.

With only 40 calories and 10 grams of carbs per cup cooked this vegetable is the perfect low-carb and gluten-free substitute to family-favorite recipes that typically use pasta, like shrimp scampi, spaghetti meatballs, or my personal favorite, Garlic Butter Chicken and Spaghetti Squash.

If you need a gluten-free substitute for pasta or a lower carb option, spaghetti squash is it! Many of our members use it to substitute pasta in our Classic Meal Plan, and it makes an appearance or two in the Grain-Free Meal Plan and in the Family Kickstart Program.
