this recipe is a wonderful go-to flavorful, seasoned chicken recipe to use for salads; to fill fajitas and pot pies; put it in pastas and sandwiches, or simply eat it as a tasty piece of protein! basically- anytime you need cooked chicken for a recipe this is how you can prepare it.

boneless, skinless chicken tenders
seasonings: garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, pepper, season salt (such as Lawrys brand)
extra virgin olive oil

-choose the amount of chicken you need for your recipe (about 4 tenders = one chicken breast)
-prepare it how you need (cube it, slice it thin, leave it whole...)
-evenly season both sides of chicken with a blend of seasonings
-cook chicken with about 1 tsp. olive oil (per breast) in a [preferably] non-stick pan

serves as much as you need

this chicken was the favorite of Miss Catherine Monroe, in which she compared all other chicken around 'her favorite chicken'

-cooking in a non-stick pans allows you to use less oil- aka: it's healthier!
-for asian dishes, add some powdered ginger and coriander
-for latin dishes, add some chile powder and cumin
-if shredding the chicken, cook the breast whole, then shred the chicken by pulling it apart with 2 forks (or your hands if it's cool enough!)

  1. We had "Catherine's Favorite Chicken" last night in a caesar salad and it was delicious! The preparation is so easy but it's big on flavor. And it's true, when Miss Catherine Monroe took a bite last night, she asked, "is this my favorite chicken", and indeed it was.
