Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Cook chicken tenders or patties according to package directions, which typically go something like this: Preheat oven to 425 ° F. Place frozen tenders in a single layer on a Silpat or parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. Bake frozen tenders for 8-10 minutes. Carefully remove tray from oven, keeping oven on.
  3. Flip tenders over, and spread a generous amount of enchilada sauce over the top. Sprinkle with a big pinch of shredded cheese.
  4. Place back in the oven, and continue to bake 8-10 minutes more, or until tenders are golden brown, crispy, and cheese is melted and bubbly.

Recipe Notes

Notes: The amount of sauce you will need will depend on how large your tenders are. Spread the sauce over the top of the tender just up to the edges. The same goes for the cheese.
