Good afternoon, friends! A few days ago I shared my recipe for Zesty Bread Seasoning and I mentioned that it could be used as an all purpose seasoning as well. Today, we’re going to do just that as I show you how to make some zesty baked chicken tenders! If you missed the post on how to make my seasoning, please click here. Scroll down to the bottom for a printable recipe card.
This is easy as can be, reinforcing my sincere thought that the best food is simple food. In a world where it feels like folks are trying to impress you with an ingredient list that reads like an encyclopedia, lets just collectively sigh in relief while we use just three ingredients here.
Zesty Bread Seasoning, Olive Oil, Chicken Tenders. That’s it!
Now if you haven’t made my Zesty Bread Seasoning yet, here is one more excuse to do so. If you just don’t want to make it, open up your cabinet and grab some of your favorite herbs, some kosher salt, and some garlic powder and just mix them up in whatever proportions feel good to you right now and go forward with the rest of this recipe. 🙂
To make this, simply lay out your chicken tenders on a baking sheet. Brush both sides with olive oil and sprinkle both sides liberally with the seasoning blend. Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink in the center. If your tenders are thinner, they’ll be done sooner, thicker ones will need more time.
This is my new blue enamel baking sheet. It’s a great size because it is just a little smaller so two of them can fit side by side in the oven. They also have it in lavender. Click here to see them on Amazon.
I may or may not have blue and lavender enamel muffin tins, too, but the inventory is low so skedaddle if you want one (click here).
I hope your new year is off to a good start. I am enjoying a slower start this year as I spend time redecorating my living room and decluttering my house a bit. Ricky and I have enjoyed slower evenings as well, drinking coffee together and talking over our days. Consciously stepping back from the craziness of the world makes all the difference and I highly recommend it whenever you can!
