Chicken tenders are a great weekend or party food. Kids and adults can agree upon them, and they require tasty dipping sauces. What more to love?

Sadly, they can be expensive to buy on a regular basis. Also, store bought chicken tenders lack the nutrition benefits of homemade ones. My son adores chicken tenders for snack, but often I hesitate when it comes to processed or fried foods. Plus, you can't beat the taste of homemade.

Finally, a solution: inexpensive, savory, lightly seasoned chicken tenders with a grown-up twist.

After baking, the bleu cheese is very subtle, and perfectly suitable for kids. My son dove in without a second thought. It adds a creamy texture, without overpowering the chicken. The rosemary brings out the toasted taste of the breading.

For the adults, the bleu cheese and rosemary is sophisticated enough to serve at a children's party or for a nice afternoon watching the game with some cocktails.

Mmmm blue cheese. These look great, I'll give it a go this week :)

They sound incredible. I would have to only make this on occasion however since I have to limit my fats, and every form of bleu cheese I've ever sampled is high in both fat and salt. Still, for a treat now and then, they look great.
Aww thanks Goodhart! I hear you, I have to limit gluten. These were a guilty indulgence for me too :)
Yum yum yum yum yum! They look amazing. :D
