    Hey Rachel, here's a simple recipe for chicken tenders (you may already have it).
    1. Marinate chicken in freezer bag with about 1/2 Cup vinegar and oil dressing (I use Newman's Own) minimum of 1 hour.
    2. Cover chicken in bread crumbs
    3. Bake about 30-40 minutes at 375.

    So easy!

    Thanks, Jena. That does sound simple! Btw, I love your Heartland blog. Will be checking that out more.
