Everything Bagel Chicken Tenders are perfect for a quick and easy weeknight dinner! Serve these crispy baked chicken tenders with sweet and tangy maple mustard dipping sauce for a meal that will be a hit with the whole family!
Let’s get this week started with an easy dinner recipe reminiscent of something we probably all grew up eating. Crispy, crunchy, chicken tenders. Instead of making traditional I decided to upgrade mine and add everything bagel seasoning to them. These Everything Bagel Chicken Tenders will satisfy both the kid and adult in you!
There’s many ways to make chicken tenders or chicken nuggets. You can fry them, although I prefer not to go this route. You can still get crispy chicken tenders through baking and you don’t have to mess with frying or the extra calories. Then of course there’s my least favorite method, opening a box of them from the freezer section at the grocery store.
I get that sometimes the box of frozen chicken tenders is convenient and easy, but the flavor, texture and nutrition is nothing compared to when you make your own.
Have I sold you yet on making your own baked chicken tenders? Still need convincing? Let’s talk about how easy they are to make.
That’s all there is to it! Dinner can literally be on the table in less than 30 minutes and it will taste so much better than what you get in the box from the freezer section.
If you’re like me then you’ll need a dipping sauce for your Everything Bagel Chicken Tenders. Ketchup is great, but we can do better than that. Maple mustard dipping sauce is where it’s at friends! It’s sweet, it’s tangy and even a little spicy if you want. Dijon mustard, maple syrup and sriracha are all you need for the sauce. Not into spice? Skip the sriracha.
This Southwest Lentil and Brown Rice Casserole is a cozy, hearty, vegetarian dinner that’s perfect for a cold night! Easy to make and great for meal prep.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I can’t believe it’s December, I know it’s going to fly by. Before everything gets too crazy with recipes for Christmas cookies, brunch casseroles and more ham recipes than you’ll ever need, I wanted to share the recipe for this Southwest Lentil and Brown Rice Casserole.
After all the rich Thanksgiving food and leftovers we had over the last few days, I thought this vegetarian protein and fiber filled dinner would do us all some good. Time to get the body back in check before we eat no less than 100 Christmas cookies.
Aside from how delicious this casserole tastes, the next best thing is how easy it is to make. Except for sautéing onions and garlic, everything else goes into the casserole dish uncooked. Minimal effort on your end with maximum flavor results.
You probably noticed there’s no meat in this casserole and honestly, I need a little break from it after all the turkey. Even without the meat there’s still plenty of protein. A half cup of cooked lentils has 12 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. Combine that with a little more protein and fiber from the brown rice and you have yourself a hearty meatless meal.
For this recipe I used . I love Pacific’s broths because they actually have flavor unlike other brands and I appreciate the simple, real, organic ingredients that are used to make them. No fillers, gums, yeasts, GMOs or MSG. It’s basically what you would use if you were making your own homemade broth.
I used it in this that I made last month and it was delicious. If you aren’t tired of pumpkin, I highly recommend adding it as a side dish to your Christmas dinner menu.
Absolutely! The only change you will make to the recipe will be to omit the cheese on top. If you’d like feel free to add your favorite shredded vegan cheese instead.
I often get questions about how spicy my Southwest and Mexican recipes are. It can be a difficult question to answer because the amount of spice we can tolerate is different for everybody. Personally I like my food on the spicy, but not so spicy that I can’t taste any of the other ingredients or flavors.
If you like spicy I recommend using a medium heat red enchilada sauce and mild or hot green chiles. You can also add spice or remove spice by using a hot or mild chili powder. If you want the casserole to have mild heat, use mild enchilada sauce and either mild green chiles or a bell pepper.
If you do meal prepping for the week this casserole will easily make enough to last you the entire week, or you can freeze it for a later date. Before serving, top the Lentil and Brown Rice Casserole with diced tomatoes, avocado and cilantro. A squeeze of fresh lime juice is also a nice finishing touch.
