Chicken Tender Dinner Ideas
I regularly shop Target (and especially their sales paired with coupons and Cartwheel!), and I find affordable quick meals in the freezer section. I was looking for easy chicken options that had wholesome ingredients. For my meal planning, I like to get chicken and simple appetizers so we can enjoy our own Sunday Funday tailgate parties or easy snacks. Grab a bag of chicken tenders or chicken strips and get cooking! Both chicken strips and the chicken wings are easy to prepare and can be cooked up fast. Dinner doesn’t look the same when you add in easy solutions to busy nights.
