Rosemary and Garlic Chicken Tenderloins Recipe

Rosemary and Garlic Chicken Tenderloins
Crispy Chicken Tenders

This Rosemary and Garlic Chicken Tenderloins Recipe were originally created with Kraft Fresh Takes. Don’t worry! I have updated the recipe with substitutions and I hope someone enjoys it. If you decide to make it and have suggestions, please let me know in the comments.

My mom and sister were raving about Kraft Fresh Takes (now sadly discontinued), so I decided to give it a try.

Verdict: Pretty Yummy!

I chose the Rosemary and Roasted Garlic version and picked up some Publix Green-wise Chicken Tenderloins to use with it. Please understand I am not a good cook, partly because I can’t stand touching things I don’t like such as raw meat, and partly because I suck at following directions – so easy meals like this are a must in my home.

** I originally used the Kraft Fresh Take Rosemary & Roasted Garlic, but now use Shake ‘N Bake Seasoned Panko and add my own rosemary and garlic.

Rosemary and Garlic Chicken Tenderloins - Use a ziplock or bowl to completely coat your chicken tenders
Use a ziplock bag to mix your ingredients and coat the chicken.

We preheated the oven to 375 degrees (I don’t know how to make the degrees symbol yet on my keyboard). Even though the recipe called for coating the baking sheet with cooking spray, all I had was baking spray (I don’t bake either, but I absolutely love the spray) and I think it worked just fine. We were able to cover 14 tenders with the breading mixture with a little leftover to sprinkle on top as suggested.

Personally, I think the extra sprinkling of the breading made all the difference!

Time to cook!

After 20 – 25 minutes, they reached the right temperature of 165 degrees and they were done. The smell of rosemary filled our apartment.

I miss the Kraft Fresh Takes - they made life easy and yummy

You would agree that we could have cooked them another five minutes for the crispness, but two out of three children loved them. Only my picky eater couldn’t finish his one piece. The seasoning was a little strong for me and I was glad to have paired it with some sweet corn as it offset the savoriness. Then again, I’m pickier with food than anyone I know — I can’t even use table pepper (Yes, I am that pain in the ass in restaurants).

P.S. Here is a graphic I found to make the substitutions for the Fresh Takes:
