Italian Chicken Tenders

My Italian chicken tenders are a recreation of a delicious staple on a local buffet.  Everyday at lunch a local Italian place hs a lunch buffet that is to die for.  The first time I ate there I fell in love with their Italian Chicken Tenders

When I asked the waitress what they were,  she said they were chicken tenders tossed in their house Italian dressing.  These would be perfect with a side salad or some mashed potatoes!

  1. This recipe was super yummy! Easy to make as well. Can’t go wrong with chicken tenders drizzled in Italian dressing. I had no doubt I would find these at the store btw lol

  2. You loose the farm!! LOL. I almost never have breaded chicken tenders, but this sounds so good I might have to go out and get some! Thanks for sharing on the Time to Sparkl Link Party. I shared my Seafood Minestrone there, stop by and check it out if you have a chance.
