The Top Four Chicken Tender Recipes You NEED for National Chicken Tender Day

July 27, 2021

Do you know what July 27 is? Only the best day ever — National Chicken Tender Day! There’s just something amazing about a chicken tender (or two, or three, or four), and today is a great day to celebrate them. You might even say we’re “savoring” the day — because with our NEW Sweet & Savory Chicken Tenders, it’s a more delicious way to celebrate than ever!

Wondering where the “sweet” and “savory” come from? Joining our line of gluten-free frozen chicken tenders — the ONLY baked (never fried) tenders and the LOWEST in calories and fat — they’re coated in sweet potato and a medley of herbs including garlic, onion, rosemary and sage. Sweet refers to the sweet potato coating — the first-ever sweet potato coated tenders, in fact! Savory refers to the flavor, and we gotta say, they almost taste like Thanksgiving stuffing!

They’re made with all-natural, cage-free, premium chicken with no antibiotics ever and free from artificial ingredients. Plus, they’re only 550 calories for the whole bag. Seriously.

So in honor of our new chicken tenders and one of our favorite holidays of the year, we’ve rounded up four easy, tasty recipes using our Sweet & Savory Chicken Tenders that all “cluck” in with preparation at 25 minutes or less. So round up your fellow hens and roosters for a little poultrypalooza and let’s get crackin’!
