You know that feeling when you make a dish for the first time and instantly fall in love with it?! This is that dish.

I made these tenders a few weeks ago for an evening meal and knew I needed to recreate them to share with you guys.Because I love you and I want you to eat yummy, clean food too! 

Perhaps one of the best parts about them is that they take little time to prepare so they’re great when you want REAL food in a hurry. SO EASYYY folks! None of that fake, fast food stuff. They’re not the prettiest tenders in the world so don’t judge a book by its cover. You’ll just have to try em’ for yourself!
