Today is National Chicken Tender Day. Who knew that was actually a thing? Not that we needed an excuse to sink our teeth into some tasty chicken tenders, but a holiday is a holiday!
At CAULIPOWER, we’ve made a healthier, tastier version of your favorite comfort food so that there’s no need to wait for a splurge. Our BAKED (never fried) frozen chicken tenders are undeniably delicious on their own, but many of us have some extra time on our hands these days so why not test out some recipes? Here are 5 healthy frozen chicken tender recipes you may have never thought of to make every day feel like National Chicken Tender Day.
Skip Panda Express with Healthy Baked Orange Chicken
Kids begging for chinese food? Orange chicken craving that just WON’T go away? We’ve created a version that’s ready at home in minutes, with ingredients you can actually pronounce. One taste of our sweet and savory sauce is all you’ll need to ditch the drive-through without a second thought. Spice things up even more and say goodbye to those grains by adding our NEW Sesame Citrus Riced Cauliflower to this weeknight meal hack instead.
Turn Up The Heat with a Spicy Chicken Sandwich
You’re only five ingredients away from the flavorful, savory sandwich of your dreams. This classic dish comes with a guilt-free twist, featuring our tastier healthier chicken strips nestled between two soft, pillowy brioche buns. And for our spice averse friends, this sandwich is just as delicious with our CAULIPOWER Original Chicken Tenders. Either way, at the end of this meal, you’ll be shouting “ALL HAIL THE NEW QUEEN OF THE CHICKEN SANDWICH WARS!”
Slice It, Dice It, and Spiralize It with Healthy Chicken Parm
Sometimes you just need to have a “fancy” dinner, even if you’re still stuck at home. So whip on a fresh new pair of sweats, spray on a new layer of dry shampoo, and preheat that oven because this Healthy Chicken Parm is going to reinvent ‘fine dining’. We’ve topped our healthy chicken strips with mouthwatering mozzarella and zesty tomato sauce, and traded out the pasta for tasty zucchini noodles… making this meal your gluten-free, one-way ticket to Italy. Go ahead and make a night of it. Light the candles, open a bottle of wine. It is Monday, after all.
Get It to The Greek…Pita with Greek Salad Pita Pockets with Chicken
Close your eyes. Listen to the sound of the waves crashing on a sandy beach in Greece. Oh wait. Maybe that’s just the water pouring over the sink filled with more dishes. Anyway... we can pretend, can’t we? Allow these Greek Salad Pita Pockets to bring your taste buds on a Greek adventure. This weeknight meal hack comes fully loaded with fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, onion, tangy olives, refreshing mint, and last but not least, our crispy CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders. You can thank us later :)
Fire Up The Grill With BBQ Chicken Pizza
Your Summer BBQs may be a bit different this year (party of one?) but that doesn't mean the Summer BBQ spirit is lost. Fire up the grill, put on some tunes, and hey, maybe crack open a cold one, cause this party is about to get LIT. Add our healthier frozen chicken tenders onto our crispy CAULIPOWER Cauliflower Pizza Crust (why not have the best of both worlds?), pile on two types of cheese, and mix it all together with America’s favorite sauce. #Protip: you can actually barbecue the ENTIRE pizza (check out how here). “No grill left behind,” as we always say. And if you happen to be basking by the pool as you enjoy a slice - or three - watch out for mask tan lines!
Excited to try one (or ALL) of these amazing weeknight meal hacks? Our healthier frozen chicken tenders are available now in the freezer aisle at your favorite grocery store, and through grocery delivery or pickup! Find them NEAR YOU and celebrate National Chicken Tender Day today. And tomorrow. And the next day... ok let’s be honest, every day should be National Chicken Tender Day.
