This meal takes just over 30 minutes from start to finish. That makes it perfect for a busy night of extra activities. I like to make this one when we have plans to go to weeknight movie – it is filling enough to get them through the show without needing all that popcorn!

The light breading on the chicken makes the kiddos happy – they think they are getting chick strips for dinner! And the big bold garlic flavor is going to the keep the grown-ups happy with this classic paring of Italian flavors. I think this dish fits in pretty perfectly with my Let’s Get Fancy Recipe Collection.

I have learned that a “Fish Flipper” is the best to use for pan frying the chicken tenderloins. Since they are long and skinny, the Fish Flipper makes is easier to maneuver them around the pan. I have a nylon one for my ceramic coated pans and a metal one for my cast iron pans and I use them for almost every meal!

You can also use this rice recipe for lots of different meals or even as a quick and easy lunch. It goes great with a nice Steak or Pork Tenderloin – or you could get real fancy and serve it with Shrimp Scampi.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
