Poultry Essentials: Low Carb Chicken Tenders

Andy Anderson !


These are a really yummy way to cook a low-carb chicken tender that has plenty of great taste. They are easy to make, and work well in a variety of dishes.

For example, you could cut them up and place them on a bed of greens, or you could serve them up as a snack with some honey-mustard dipping sauce. It’s up to you.

I’m short on some images, because I made these up in a hurry, but never-the-less, they are awesome.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
