Any ideas on what to make for dinner with chicken tenders?

I have a pound of chicken tenders and not sure what to do with them tonight. i'm sick of making breaded chicken strips, chicken burgers and bacon wrapped chicken tenders. does anyone have other suggestions or favorite recipes. even if its a recipe in which i cut them up would be fine.

Thank you everyone!!

    This is a recipe from my husband's aunt that I make all the time. It makes a 9x13 pan full but if you have a smaller group to feed, split it between two smaller pans and freeze one before cooking. It is excellent.

    Sour Cream Chicken Enchilada Casserole

    1 pound cooked/shredded chicken breast

    small can green chilies

    small onion diced

    small can evaporated milk

    ½ cup chicken broth

    1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup

    8 ounces of sour cream

    1 pound of Velveeta cheese cubed

    flour tortillas

    Saute onion and green chilies. Add soup, broth, and milk until mixed together. Turn off heat. Add sour cream and chicken. Brush 9x13 pan with margarine. Tear tortillas and line bottom of pan. Put half of filling on tortillas. Put half of cheese on top of filling. Repeat with layers ending with cheese. Cover and bake at 350 for approximately 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 more minutes. Let sit for a little while before cutting.

    If you want to eat truly healthy, lose body fat consistently, normalize your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, prevent cancer, and even boost your brain health and energy levels, you may have heard all over the news that the Paleo Diet has been found to be one of the best methods of achieving all of these benefits compared to any other popular "fad" diets out there. Go here

    The truth is that the Paleo Diet will never be considered a fad because it's just simply the way that humans evolved to eat over approximately 2 million years. And eating in a similar fashion to our ancestors has been proven time and time again to offer amazing health benefits, including prevention of most diseases of civilization such as cancer, heart disease, alzheimers, and other chronic conditions that are mostly caused by poor diet and lifestyle. One of the biggest misunderstandings about the Paleo Diet is that it's a meat-eating diet, or a super low-carb diet. This is not true

    Parmesan Chicken

    6 bnls, sknls Chicken Breast

    1 cup A/P flour

    1 tsp. kosher salt

    ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

    2 extra-large eggs

    1 ¼ cups seasoned dry bread crumbs

    ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving

    Unsalted butter

    Good olive oil

    Cut chicken breasts into 1” strips, pat dry w/ paper towels.

    On one dinner plate, combine flour, salt, and pepper. On a second plate, beat the egg w/ 1 Tbsp. of water. On a third plate combine the bread crumbs and parmesan cheese. Cot the chicken on both sides w/ the flour, then dip into the egg, then into the bread crumbs, pressing lightly.

    Heat 1 Tbsp of butter and 1 Tbsp. of oil in a large sauté pan on medium-low. Cook chicken in batches on both sides until cooked through. Chicken is done when meat is opaque and juices run clear. Add more butter and oil to cook remaining batches as needed. Sprinkle more parmesan cheese on top of cooked chicken to serve.

    1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken meat

    2 Tbsp oil

    1 tsp. toasted sesame oil, optional

    1 tsp salt

    2 Tbsp soy sauce

    2 sticks celery, thinly slices

    2 oz fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced

    4 oz frozen peas

    1 cup chicken stock

    2 tsp cornstarch

    3 oz split, toasted almonds

    Cut the meat into paper thin slices and salt. Heat the oils, add chicken and fry for about 5 minutes or until the meat is tender. Add the soy sauce and mix well.

    Add celery, mushrooms, and peas, mix well and cook for 1 minute. Add the stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 3-5 minutes.

    Mix the cornstarch to a smooth paste with a little cold water, stir into the pan, bring to the boil, stirring all the time until slightly thickened.

    Add the almonds and serve over steamed rice.

    Nikki's idea is great...add them to a salad and if you have canned mandarin oranges drain them and throw them in as well...add slivered toasted almonds and those crunchy chow mein noodles and use an asian dressing (Kraft sesame is great) and it makes a really good meal.
