We are just about wore out eating BBQ this and BBQ that. Frozen tenders to the rescue! Sides are a copycat KFC slaw and an American style potato salad with a few onion rings fried up from frozen out of a bag. I made a rough tartar sauce for the chicken, treating the tenders much as I would fish filets. It has mayo, minced red onion, jalapeno, sweet pickle relish, and a squirt of lemon juice. It was all really easy eating.
My local Kroger store has started stocking San Marzano tomatoes and I bought a few cans the last trip we made. In a hurry this evening for a dinner, I opened a can, chopped the tomatoes a little, and cooked them and their juice with a few florets of broccoli, some bell peppers, and half an onion. With a little dried basil and two cloves of garlic the sauce cooked only long enough to cook the broccoli and was served over angel hair pasta. Wasn’t bad! I baked a few chicken tenders in the toaster oven with a little mozzarella on them to serve with it. That big bag of frozen breaded chicken tenders has been a lifesaver more than once.
