Kicked Chicken Tenders

Chicken aren't exactly an elegant bird. They don't make people catch their breath when they see one, or get out binoculars and a journal to denote where they found one. However, this doesn't make chickens a boring bird. In fact, since they are the most common domesticated bird  they can be lots of fun. 

However, if you are an environmentalist, you have the right to stop reading and simply enjoy the recipe.

Chickens are fun to chase about, especially after they have had their heads removed improperly. But that is cruel, so we don't suggest anyone actually do that. Because killing animals is... mean. So instead we will send them all to the chop shop where it is done "humanely" and there is none of this running around headless nonsense. 

Apparently the creators of Fable 2 thought killing chickens was mean as well, so instead of giving you achievements for killing small innocent critters like World of Warcraft does, they give you an achievement for "Kicking a chicken a respectable distance." After all, kicking chickens is far more "humane" than killing them... right?  Hey, maybe that's what makes them tender?


Kicked Chicken Tenders w/ Potatoes and Beans
4 Servings | Total Time: 30 Minutes | Apprentice

  • 1 lb Chicken Tenders
  • 3 tbl Butter
  • 1 tbl Garlic
  • 2 tbl Hot Sauce
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 6 slices of Bacon
  • 4 Red Potatoes
  • 1 medium Onion, diced
  • 16 oz frozen Green and Yellow Beans
  • 1/2 tsp Seasoning salt
Craft: In a large skillet, fry the chicken tenders in the butter on medium heat. While the chicken is cooking, cut up the bacon into pieces and fry with the onions in a large pan. While these are frying, cook the potatoes in the microwave for about 7 minutes or until soft.  Dice them up and add to the pan.  Add the beans and cook for about 10-12 minutes.  Add seasoning salt. When the chicken is cooked, add the garlic, hot sauce and salt. Cook for about 5 minutes more.

Strategies: You can do the initial cooking of the chicken on an Indoor Appliance Grill to speed up the process or free up a pan. Though the chicken will need to be put in a pan when you season it.
