Oatmeal-Crusted Chicken Tenders Recipe

Remember to flavor these up as much as you like. You can add or subtract any of the ingredients to your taste. Dip in low cal Ranch dressing, Honey Mustard or any low cat dip you like. Try a sweet and sour sauce for an added kick

Oats with their high fiber content, are already known to help remove cholesterol from the digestive system that would otherwise end up in the bloodstream.

1 cup regular oats
3/4 cup (3 oz) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp chili flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 lb chicken breast tenders
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.

Place oats in a food processor, and process for 20 seconds or until
coarsely ground. Add cheese, thyme, salt pepper and all other spices. Pulse to combine, and place in a shallow bowl.

Place each chicken breast tender between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic
wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy
skillet. Coat both sides of tenders with cooking spray; dredge tenders
in oat mixture. Place tenders on a baking sheet coated with cooking
spray. Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 minutes or until browned.
