Chicken Tenders with Rosemary Sweet Potatoes
Hobbes' Chicken McNuggets! Moms and Dads, this dish is fast, easy, cheap and the kids will love the stuff!
First get your oven nice and hot, around 375* works well. Slice some potatoes and place in a large stainless steel bowl. Now peel a sweet potato and slice it up, cut it so it looks like large french fries.
Pour in some olive oil, salt and pepper, paprika, fresh rosemary and a few whole cloves of garlic (skins left on). Mix the ingredients to coat the potatoes with oil and seasoning. Place on a sheet pan or roasting pan. Tip to help with the clean up; use parchment paper if you want... Throw these in the oven until done, 30-45 minutes.
While those are cooking, season your organic chicken tenders with salt and pepper, then cover with a little bit of flour. Place a pan over high heat with quite a bit of olive oil (not extra virgin). When the oil is really hot place tenders in the pan. If you're doing a lot, then cook a few at a time, if you crowd the pan the meat tends to want to steam and not brown. With tongs turn when brown, if you want you can finish them in the oven. Tip: These will cook fast so make sure your spuds are almost done!
