Today’s Menu: Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders w/ Velveeta Shells and Cheese



Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders w Velveeta Shells and Cheese 019
For Breakfast I had a bowl of Kashi 7 Whole Grains Puffs. Ohh baby it’s cold outside! Everyone knew our mild Winter wouldn’t holdout the entire season but no one is ready for this. This morning it was 4 degrees with a wind chill of -7 degrees. The day was sunny all day and a high of 11 degrees but the wind chill kept it below zero all day. So nothing to do but stay in! Gave the bedroom a good cleaning, did a load of laundry and cleaned my computer desk. Amazing how much junk can accumulate on a computer desk! For dinner tonight it was Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders w/ Velveeta Shells and Cheese.

I wanted a hot meal but just didn’t feel like putting a lot of effort in it. So when I was at Kroger yesterday I picked up a package of PERDUE® SIMPLY SMART® – Gluten Free Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders. I have used these before but it’s been a while. They come in a sealed package, you can freeze them or prepare them from fresh, I prepared them from fresh. All the Tenders are nice size and well seasoned, the amount of Breading is perfect. They are also gluten-free. They are 150 calories and 13 carbs per serving, 2 Tenders per serving.

To prepare them; Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. I used a small cookie sheet that I lined with foil and sprayed the foil with Pm Cooking Spray. When the oven was ready I heated the Tenders for 8 minutes. Removed it from the oven and flipped the Tenders and heated them another 8 minutes. removed from the oven and let the Tenders cool for 3 minutes and they were ready to serve! As I said earlier, good breading and nicely seasoned. I baked 2 servings for my dinner. Served them with a side of JB’S Fat Boy Sticky Stuff BBQ Sauce. Love all the sauces and rubs from JB Fat Boy.


For a side dish to go with the Tenders I prepared another easy to prepare item, Velveeta Shells and Cheese (Made Breaded Chicken Breast Tenders w Velveeta Shells and Cheese 010with 2% Milk Cheese). This comes in a microwavable container. To prepare just remove the lid of the container and remove the Sauce Pouch. (You will see loose white powder in pasta. This is necessary for proper cooking.) Add water To fill- line in cup. Do not fill water above line. Microwave, uncovered, on high 3-1/2 min, until Pasta is tender. Remove from the microwave and stir in cheese sauce until its well blended. (Let stand 1 To 2 min. To thicken cheese sauce.) And Done! As all Velveeta and Kraft Products the Cheese Sauce was fantastic. Easy to prepare side dish, it’s 180 calories and 30 net carbs per serving (1 Container). So it was Chicken and Pasta tonight, easy to prepare and a good filling dinner. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
