When I lived in California, I used to eat fast-casual food quite a bit-it was so easy to pick up a sandwich, chicken/veggie bowl, salad or bowl of soup. Living in Boston, it’s much less convenient since the closest fast casual eatery is a 15-minute walk away. The walk isn’t a bad thing, but when the weather isn’t pleasant, I’d rather just eat leftovers or something in the freezer.
That said, one of my favorite lunches is cut up raw vegetables with Trader Joe’s Breaded Chicken Tenderloin Breasts with Frank’s Red Hot Wings Sauce (Buffalo). The chicken tenders are the best I’ve eaten and relatively low in fat and carbohydrates. Adding the Buffalo sauce makes them out of this world!
I’m very particular about the way I prepare this meal. Since the chicken tenders are fully cooked, I first thaw them in the microwave, and them place them directly on the toaster oven rack. They’re cooked on the medium toast setting until they’re warmed throughout and have a crispy exterior. Sometimes I cover the entire tender with Buffalo sauce and other times I dip them in sauce as I eat them. Although this meal is a no-brainer, I wanted to share it since it’s one of my favorites. Enjoy!
