Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans




Chicken Tenders Minute Grain Medley 007

I believe we have our Indian Summer going on here in west Chester. They say it’s usually after the first frost, most of our area had their first one Tuesday morning. Then about a day later the temps started climbing, a high of around 64 today. Then they’re calling possibly for record highs near 80 degrees for the next few days. So this might be our last blast of heat. Not much going on today, got some housework done and settled in for another afternoon of Football, NFL this time. For dinner tonight I prepared Fried Chicken Tenders w/ Multi – Grain Medley and Cut Green Beans.



I used Kroger Simple Truth Natural Chicken Tenders. I seasoned the Tenders with, McCormick Perfect Pinch Parmesan Herb Seasoning, Sea Salt, and Ground Black Pepper. Then I got some Low fat Buttermilk and poured a cup of it in a plastic container and mixed about 5 shakes of Frank’s Red Hot sauce into it, mixing well. I then added my Chicken Tenders to it, sealed it and set it in the fridge to marinate. When it came time to prepare them I removed them from the marinade, shaking off any excess of the Buttermilk mix. I laid them on a large dish that I had already added Shake and Bake Seasoned Panko to. Rolled the Tenders in the Panko until all sides were covered with Panko Crumbs. Let them sit a few minutes and I used a large skillet, I sprayed with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added 2 tablespoons of Canola Oil to. Heated the skillet on medium heat. After Oil was heated I added my Tenders. I cooked them about 5 minutes per side until golden brown and 165 internal temperature. They came out delicious! The seasoning was spot on and the Buttermilk and Hot Sauce mixture gave it a fantastic taste. The Panko gave it a beautiful crust. As they say “Winner, Winner Chicken Dinner”.



For one side dish I tried a new one, Minute Multi-Grain Medley. I seen this advertised the other day and it looked and sounded great so I picked up a box of it at Walmart yesterday. It has Brown Rice, Thai red Rice, Wild Rice, and Quinoa. Now that’s a good combo of Grains! The box contains 4 – 2 Serving Packets and easy to prepare. Combine water and the contents of one bag in medium saucepan and stir. Add oil if desired. Or, if desired, to add more flavor, substitute broth, fruit or vegetable juice for water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 MINUTES or until water is absorbed. Remove from heat. Fluff with fork and serve! Esay to prepare and makes one excellent side dish. Another staple for side dishes. Plus it’s only 160 calories and 31 net carbs. Then I also heated up a small can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Minute Multi-Grain Medley


* Minute® Multi-Grain Medley is a blend of four popular gluten-free 100% whole grains and is ready in only 10 minutes. The four grains include:
* Brown Rice – usually brown but can be black, purple, red or a variety of exotic hues.
* Thai Red Rice – also known as Khao Deng, is an ancient grain that has a pleasant and nutty flavor.
* Wild Rice – not technically rice at all but the seed of an aquatic grass. It has a strong, hearty flavor that goes well with other grains.
* Quinoa (pronounced “KEEN-wah”) – is a small, light-colored round grain, similar in appearance to sesame seeds. It cooks up light and fluffy. The protein in quinoa is a complete protein as it contains all nine essential amino acids.
This quick cooking whole grain medley is pre-portioned in 4 separate bags for ease of preparation and has a slightly chewy, nutty flavor. Perfect for any meal, even as a wholesome start to the day, this medley is great when eaten with a little olive oil and salt, cooked in meat/vegetable broths or fruit juices. Make Minute® Multi-Grain Medley a versatile recipe staple for your pantry.
