There is something extremely important about having the ingredients on hand to create delicious meals that are quick and easy. To be honest, with two young children it is difficult to go to the grocery store for just a few things, and we have the horrible tendency to put it off until it is absolutely necessary to go.

Because we still have a baby in diapers we tend to go to Target at least once per week, so we normally pick up a few groceries that will hold us over until our next big grocery shopping trip.

We really dislike going to the grocery store.

Target carries a wide variety of Kraft products, and the recipe I will be highlighting below includes products you can get at Target–but featuring my secret ingredient when dealing with fried chicken–mayo! Never made fried chicken with mayo before? Just wait until you try this:

Easy Fried Chicken Tenders, made with only a handful of ingredients is one of the quickest and most delicious meals I can make. Just follow the steps below and you’ll be ready to rock.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Oil (I used coconut oil because I’m obsessed with it lately)
  • 1lb Chicken breast, cut into tenders
  • Kraft Mayo
  • Italian Bread Crumbs (if you only have plain bread crumbs, add 1-2Tbsp of Italian seasoning into your bread crumb mixture)
  • Salt
  • Pepper

That is it! Prep is also extremely easy.

Fill your frying pan with enough oil to reach 1/4 to 1/2 of an inch, depending on the size of your chicken tenders. I like when the oil covers a little more than half of my chicken. Put your stove on low to heat the oil.

Depending on how much chicken you’re cooking, put 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs into a bowl, add your Italian seasoning (if necessary) salt and pepper. The beauty of this recipe is it is extremely easy to adjust if you decide to make more.

After cutting your chicken into tenders, place into a bowl. Add 1/3-1/2 cup of Kraft Mayo until you get a nice coating on every slice of chicken. The image below is about the consistency I like to reach.

Dredge the chicken in the bread crumb mix until they are evenly coated.

Turn your flame up to a medium heat, and add the chicken. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until it turns a nice golden brown. Once you’ve finished pat off excess oil and enjoy! We personally love these with barbecue sauce.

This pairs perfectly with Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, especially if you’re in a time crunch.

The fact that Target now carries Kraft products is exciting, especially if your family is like mine and find yourselves in Target more often than in any grocery store. If I’m not mistaken, Target is just so much more fun!
