Chicken Fingers

It's no surprise that I like chicken.  If we go out for dinner and I can't ever decide what to get, I resort to chicken fingers. You usually can't mess those up.  This recipe for homemade chicken tenders caught my eye on pinterest so I made them asap.

3/4 cup Bisquick mix
1 teaspoon paprika 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1/2 tsp garlic powder
8 chicken breast tenders
2 eggs, slightly beaten

Preheat oven to 450°F. Cover cookie sheet with foil; spray with cooking spray.  Stir Bisquick mix, paprika and salt in a dish. Dip chicken strips into eggs, then coat with Bisquick mixture. Place on cookie sheet. Repeat with other pieces.  Bake 12 to 14 minutes, flipping halfway through, until no longer pink.

InstaFriday 9

Okay, so life got really busy last November and I haven't shared any Instagram photos since then. I haven't taken many either so this post isn't going to be photo overload, but I did want to get back into sharing them and since I just transferred all my photos from my phone to my computer, today was the perfect day to start sharing again.
