I've tried three of the recipes in the book so far. The Chicken Tenders are my next recipe to try.
I will most likely add organic green beans and skip the potatoes (or plan on a baked potato). I have a similar recipe that I use like this and love it. So, looking forward to this one (page 194).
emoticon I have used chicken breasts or tenders and both work out great.

I tried them tonight along with the Roasted Red Potatoes. They were so delicious.I was surprised that I was full after eating the serving suggestion of 3 tenders.

I'm definitely adding it to my repertoire.

i haven't tried the substitute cuts! i used boneless, skinless chicken breasts. i cut them in half and used the roller to even their thickness and they turned out pretty good and cooked easier.

i only faced one small problem, as i backed them on the oven rack they tended to stick a bit!

I haven't had a chance to try them yet, but I have all of the ingredients. I don't see why you couldn't use breasts, Lorienabanana. They might be a little drier.

Has anyone tried to substitute cut chicken breast for tenders? I usually buy the breasts because they're less expensive. I'd love to know if this worked for anyone!

I'm a big fan of the baked chicken tenders as well. DH and I usually have it with three-cheese macaroni.

Life is to short to worry about the small stuff. Live life one day at a time and enjoy yourself. Give yourself a few minutes to reflect on the mistakes but look for ways that you can change for the better.

Kid, husband, and mom approved!! I made the tenders last night for supper, they were super easy and quick, and delicious with honey mustard dipping sauce. I cooked them alongside some roasted potatoes and they turned out great. I don't have a pizza screen so I cooked them directly on a sheet pan with parchment paper to prevent sticking, I turned them over at the last five minutes to crisp both sides.

Coincidentally I bought some chicken tenderloins yesterday, I usually do them with a Tandoori marinade but this recipe sounds like an interesting alternative.

I made the Baked Chicken Tenders and the Roasted Red Potatoes with Garlic Herb Oil for dinner tonight. Turned out perfect! My 5 yr old son, who is terribly picky, loved the chicken. Definitely will make again!
On a side note - I did use the pizza screen like was advised in the recipe, not sure if I will do that again. Stuck to it some and was difficult to clean.
