Most kids are hooked on breaded chicken of some sort. So here's a pan-fried version that's much healthier than drive-through or frozen-food options. Using chicken breast tenders makes these look like fast food, but you'll feel so much better about feeding them to your kids. The crispy, crunchy panko breadcrumbs lend incredible texture.
