Buttermilk Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe with Rice Chex™ cereal

Buttermilk Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe with Chex 2

This Buttermilk Ranch Chicken Tenders Recipe is brought to you by CafeMom and Chex™.  All opinions expressed here are my own. Children are a wonderful gift, however they can also be incredibly frustrating to feed. I have always been a 'cook from scratch' kind of mom.  The idea of feeding kids neon orange boxed macaroni and cheese and premade, frozen peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is rather appalling.  A walk down the frozen food aisle will showcase a number of 'kid friendly premade food products'.  Most of them are loaded with food … [Read more...]
