Mashed Potato Breaded Chicken

This is one of my new favorite recipes – Mashed potato breaded chicken (it works with fish too!)

This is an easy recipe and a very filling meal for someone who is trying to limit their carbohydrate intake in the evenings (like me because I leave for a family Hawaii vacation in 3 weeks)…

Ingredients:

  • Organic Chicken tenders
  • Powdered Mashed Potatoes (I use the Trader Joe’s brand because its more natural than the variety at the grocery store – check the label and make sure there isn’t anything that you can’t pronounce before you serve it to your family)
  • Extra Virgin Olive oil

Directions:

Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Take the chicken tenders and dip them in olive oil and then roll them in a half a serving of powdered mashed potatoes.  Spray a pan with non-stick spray and place the chicken tenders in the pan.  Cook for 20-30 minutes or until its golden brown.

Use the other half of the powdered mashed potatoes to make a side dish for yourself or your family.  And you could always cook both packets because the box comes with 2 servings if 1/2 isn’t enough for your family.
