Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders & Sweet Potato Fries

Recently I've been a little obsessed with reading other food blogs... to the point where I'm staying up way too late reading recipe after recipe.  Apparently, there's this whole Food Blog World (with conferences and everything!) that I had no idea even existed.  So, over the next few posts, I'll probably be featuring a few of my favorite recipes from this community of professional food bloggers (who make my own blog look a little silly).  Here are a few blogs that I'm especially hooked on:

Two Peas and their Pod:

Back to the food... I didn't make any major changes, so full credit goes to these pros: Multiply Delicious and Two Peas in their Pod.  Click HERE to see the original recipe for the Chicken Tenders and HERE for the Sweet Potato Fries.  I think it's a relatively healthy dish for being chicken tenders and fries.

Chicken Tenders

You'll need:
10-12 Chicken Tenders (I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts because that's what I had and just cut them into smaller pieces.  They ended up being all different shapes and sizes but still delicious.)
1 1/2 cups Newman's Own Light Honey Mustard Dressing
2 cups Honey Toasted Cereal (I used Fiber One Honey Clusters)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Break up the cereal in a food processor or blender until finely ground, and pour into a shallow bowl.  Pour the dressing in a bowl as well.  Once you clean the chicken tenders, just dip them in the dressing and dredge in the crushed cereal.

Then, I put them in a glass dish on a sheet of parchment paper (because the stuff is magical and prevents anything from sticking).

Bake for 20-25 minutes (depending on how big your pieces are), turning halfway through.

Sweet Potato Fries

You'll need:
2 Sweet Potatoes
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
Fresh Rosemary

Peel and cut potatoes into strips.  Try to make them about the same size so they'll cook evenly.

Throw potato strips into a bowl and add olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary.

Toss until all the fries are coated with olive oil and seasoning.  Spread on a baking tray and bake for 30-40 minutes, turning halfway through.

Sending you love from my kitchen (and the greater food blog world).  Enjoy!
