Homemade chicken tenders √

Serves 4 to 6.

Note: Here are four versions of chicken tenders (or nuggets or fingers, or whatever you want to call them). One is super simple. The next is a bit crunchier (and only involves adding a couple of eggs). The third, even crunchier, version has some bread crumbs as a final coating. And the fourth is the “Mom, that’s so cool!” showstopper — Chicken Parmesan on a Stick, which we have yet to encounter on a kiddie menu. You’ll need about 10 to 15 wooden skewers if you want to serve the tenders on a stick. From “The Mom 100 Cookbook,” by Katie Workman (Workman Publishing).

For the chicken:

1 lb. chicken tenders, or 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs

• 3/4 c. flour

• 1 tsp. kosher or coarse salt

• 1/4 tsp. black pepper

• About 3 tbsp. olive oil, divided

For serving, optional:

• Ketchup

Yellow, brown or honey mustard
