Glo sent me a recipe for chicken tenders that was so scrumptious and yummy, I was really surprised. My husband loved it so much he made me call his mother and give her the recipe.

I have no idea what the carbohydrate breakdown is but it's okay for induction, I know that.

Thank you glo, for sending me this recipe, I'm going to post it here in case anyone else is interested.

2 pounds Chicken Tenders


1 cup Heavy Cream

2 Tablespoons Prepared Ranch Dressing

2 teaspoons Garlic Powder

2 teaspoons Onion Powder

2 teaspoons Ground Black Pepper


1 can Parmesan Cheese, the powder kind

2-3 teaspoons each: Garlic Powder & Ground Black Pepper

Peanut oil for pan frying

How to Prepare:
Mix marinade igrediants and marinate at least 6 hours or overnight.

Combine the Parmesan breading and coat each chicken tender really well.

Add enough oil to pan fry the breaded chicken tenders. Med-High heat.

Cook the batches of tenders till they are a nice crunchy golden brown.

As an aside, my mother, who is so very ill, loved this too. She said that she preferred this to chicken fried in a white flour batter.

I thought the cheese would fall off the chicken during frying, but it didn't. The chicken tenders are nice and crispy :teeth:

Thanks again, Glo.

Sounds good!

Will you put it in the low carb recipe thread, too? :)

PS - Mastercook says 26g of carbs, 3g of fiber for the whole recipe.

Could be less depending on your brand of ranch, and just how much parmesan you use. :)

DRAT! I think my keyboard just shorted out, thanks to the droolling that recipe started. Mmmm, heavy cream.... (in your best Homer Simpson voice...)

dizneegirl, I used the can of cheese but at least one third of it didn't stick to the chicken, so this recipe would have that many fewer carbs.
