Easy Chicken Tenders

My children love the taste of fast food chicken nuggets, but I just cannot bring myself to feed them something so, well, mysterious. This is my homemade version that they've admitted they like even better than the 'real' thing.


1 lb. chicken tenders
2 tbs. mayonnaise (use light if you like)
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 1/2 cups Italian breadcrumbs
olive oil

Begin by trimming the chicken tenders of any fat. In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise and mustard. Toss tenders in the mixture to coat, then bread them in a separate bowl with the breadcrumbs. Heat a small amount of olive oil in a heavy skillet and lightly brown the tenders, laying them in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Finish in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes.
