Oatmeal Parmesan Chicken Tenders

I have been trying to reduce the processed food in the house.  Chicken nuggets have been one of the biggest favorites around the house for a long time. I've been trying to find a chicken nugget recipe that the boys will actually like!

I loved the oatmeal parmesan breading with these chicken nuggets.  They cooked nicely in the pan and crisped up without too much oil. 

While I loved the thyme in these, the boys weren't as thrilled.  So, the following week, I made them again using a barbecue seasoning.  They were a hit!  I think you could pretty much use any seasoning so go ahead and experiment!

1 cup oats
3/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp. thyme, dried (or BBQ seasoning or other seasoning)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 1/2 chicken breast tenders
1 egg, beaten- placed in a shallow bowl

Place oats in a food processor and process until ground. Add parmesan cheese, thyme, salt and pepper.  Pulse to combine and place in a shallow bowl.

Dredge chicken in egg and then in oat mixture.

Heat pan with just about a tablespoon of oil (or bacon grease).  Place tenders in pan for several minutes until browned and fully cooked.
