Greetings and Salutations from Castle Baconia – King Teddy at your service!
That’s right – here I am again in the kitchen of the castle we all know and love…………the place where bacon HAPPENS! We love our bacon here and we know you do too. Every Saturday I toss our castle chef out of the kitchen to give him a break and I take over – I show you some great recipes I find that use BACON in the ingredients and trust me – they are all beyond delicious. Most of these we have had at least once and in some cases REPEATEDLY because they are just so darn yummy.
Today’s is EXTREMELY easy………..but just because it’s easy doesn’t mean it’s not tasty! READY?????
Cheddar Bacon Chicken Tenders
1/2 cup Progresso plain panko crispy bread crumbs
1/2 cup finely shredded Cheddar cheese (2 oz)
5 slices fried bacon (yes you can use more or less as you want!!)
1 package (14 oz) uncooked chicken tenders (not breaded)
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray large cookie sheet with cooking spray.
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.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center and bread crumbs are golden brown.
Do I have to tell you how crispy/yummy/delicious these are? Can be a snack OR serve with a vegetable of your choice and it can be dinner………or lunch…………WHATEVER! Chicken and bacon make a swell combination. My Mom uses panko bread crumbs for almost ALL her baked meats and even her fried chicken.
YES INDEEDY WE ALL DO ON SATURDAYS HERE IN THE CASTLE!
People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones! Right?
Hey guy – if our castle cook ever leaves us, you’re HIRED!
Happy Saturday to all Baconians from your King
