Recipes from Pinterest-Healthy Chicken Tenders and Honey Mustard Sauce

Anyone who has Pinterest knows that they have a boards about recipes and DIY projects that they want to do, but end up forgetting that they pinned. Come on, you know you’re guilty!

My Pinterest page is filled with all kinds of yummy looking recipes that look delicious and I just keep pinning them and then forget to try them. I mean what is the point in having all of this inspiration and making the same old boring meatloaf again?

Well, I am back on the healthy train after making a stop for about 6 months and gaining 10 pounds. Yeah, I know it’s crazy . (It was a very stressful time and I have a hard time saying no to sweets.)

So I found a recipe that I pinned a while back that was healthy, yet something my kids could eat too. That was my number one goal, finding recipes that are healthy and low-calorie, but appeal to the whole family.

    This was delicious! The chicken tenders were so crispy and I did not miss the fact that they were not fried like I have with other baked chicken tenders. They were a huge hit with the rest of the family as well. A win, win, Something healthy for me that the family will eat too! SO glad I found this and tried it. Will become one of my staples for light dinner or game nights.
