Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders
1/2 cup Progresso™ plain panko crispy bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
1 3 oz cooked real bacon bits or pieces
1 package (14 oz) uncooked chicken tenders (not breaded)
Chive and onion sour cream potato topper, if desired
1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
2. In shallow bowl, beat egg. In large resealable food-storage plastic bag, place bread crumbs, cheese and bacon. Dip chicken into egg. Place in bread crumb bag; seal and shake to coat. Place chicken on cookie sheet.
3. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center and bread crumbs are golden brown. Serve with topper.
Options: use chicken breasts cut into stips instead of chicken tenders. Add garlic, pepper and onion powder for some extra flavor. Serve with sour cream, ranch or honey mustard for dipping.
