Parmesan and Cashew Crusted Baked Chicken Tenders

Parmesan and Cashew Crusted Baked Chicken Tenders

Woo! It’s the first day of the NFL regular season! I’m a football fanatic. College … professional … you name it … I love it. I love the food that goes along with it even better though … obviously. I really wanted to celebrate the start of the regular season by making something I crave during every single football game. I’m not a crazy chicken tenders/fingers/nuggets kind of girl, but I DO love them during a football game. I’m not sure why, but let’s just go with it. I lightened up a fan favorite by baking them and covering them in cashews. These chicken tenders … were … amazing.
