Crispy Chicken Sandwich Recipe

A crispy chicken sandwich made in a flash with my super-flavorful crispy baked chicken tenders and a rad sauce or two. Summer food that’s kid-friendly and secretly craved by the very best adults. Ahem.

Summertime…and the livin’ is…KID-FRIENDLY. Am I right, parents? Sorry, what was that? I can’t hear you over the rising 4th grader’s constant recording of vlogs for her fake YouTube channel. (Don’t judge. Screen time is everything.) 🙂

These crispy chicken sandwiches are kid-friendly, too. Also, though, very very adult-friendly. I’ve HEARD.

The truth is that we’re ridiculously lucky. Our kids are a little older and not a pain in the arse most of the time. They’re good eaters. They keep themselves busy on a semi-regular basis. They do things I can’t, like two back walkovers in a row and being half an inch taller than me and more than half an inch smarter than me.

So. No real complaints. (I’ll get back to you in August, though, maybe.)

At any rate, it’s nice to have some summer food ideas that please all of the people all of the time. (You can’t, I know. But I try.) This is pretty healthy chicken in a hot dog bun, to be honest. It’s easy to make, full of flavor, and can be dressed down with just ketchup, let’s say, for the kids, if that’s the kind of kids you’re dealing with. (I won’t judge. Picky eating is everything.) 🙂

Or dressed up with a glass of white wine in hand for the adults. (Don’t judge. Summer is everything.)

Talk to you soon.
