Easy Whole30 Chicken Tenders – my go-to, kid-friendly meal that is easy to make and always popular!
I am so excited to finally be sharing these with you guys! I have been perfecting this recipe for a while and it finally ready!
I don’t know about you guys, but I love having a couple recipes in my back-pocket that are easy and I know my kids will love. This is one of those recipes. Pop these guys in the oven and 25 minutes later dinner is one the table. I love dipping them in some Whole30 Ranch or compliant ketchup and serving them with some Sweet Potato Cinnamon Sticks.
Also, my Dad came to visit me this past weekend (if you haven’t already you need to read this post to hear how Whole30 changed his life!). It is the first time I have seen him since Christmas, when we decided to do January Whole30 together – it was so good to see him! And it was crazy to see how much he has changed since then! My next goal is to get him try some new recipes (he has been sticking to the the same basic recipes over and over) – we went shopping this weekend and I had him pick up the Whole30 Fast and Easy Cookbook and we went though some of the recipes together and I hope he makes them! Plus, I made him Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Beef and Broccoli and this Fritatta over the weekend, so hopefully he will make those again too!! Thank you again for all of your supportive messages about him! I tell him about all of them!
Hope you guys have a wonderful week!
