Baked Chicken Tenders

Hello Friday! I am so glad it is almost the weekend. This week was super busy at work. Mr. J was gone. I don't know how single parents do it. Between work and managing Miss O on my own the week went by fast but the days were super long. I am exhausted.

To make it manageable with all of the moving parts I tried to simplify and plan ahead as much as possible. This little gem of a dinner was super easy to throw together and was fairly quick with cooking time. Miss O knows that once we are in the kitchen food is coming.  Her waiting time is about 5 minutes. Thus any meal that takes longer than 15 minutes to cook is pretty much a no go unless we can do it on the sly. 

We have been doing a lot of grilling and it was nice to have something baked for a change.   The chicken tenders are dredged in flour, egg bath and then a mixture of flour, breadcrumbs and cornmeal, and then baked on a cookie sheet. The potatoes and green beans were cooked together on a separate cookie sheet.  Two cookie sheets and a complete dinner. This wasn't too fancy but a great meal, comforting meal.
