When the going gets tough, the tough make comfort food. Looking back on what I have made for dinner the last two or three weeks, I realize it has almost all been comfort food, albeit healthy comfort food. Usually when we come back from vacation, I delve into the food of whatever country we have visited. I love to hold onto the memories and that feeling of wonder and excitement by bringing their food to my home. I would normally be regaling you with Spanish and Italian food, but a week after we got back life threw us a major curveball.

We were on a plane to Singapore as my Father in Law had collapsed after surgery. As you may know, he passed away. While we were there, we submerged ourselves in Chinese food as a way to reconnect with family and find that silver lining by enjoying our unexpected time together. When we got back, the last thing I wanted was Chinese food. While in Singapore it brought us together, here at home it reminded me of what we had lost and the absence of my husband’s family. I found I wanted good old USA comfort food. Since Sunday Suppers is all about easy game day food, these fit perfectly. What is more American than football.

Perfect for kids. They are crispy, crunchy and I love that they are gluten free and healthy

That lead to this recipe. I have been meaning to make these Oven Fried Crispy Chicken Tenders ever since I used rice crackers to coat my Crispy Singapore Shrimp. Rice crackers make a great coating. They are crispy, crunchy and gluten-free. They pretty much do all the work of making these chicken tenders crispy without frying. With the same spice mix I loved from my Oven Fried Pork Chops, I was off to the races.

These are child friendly and cook up quickly. Whenever you are craving fried chicken, eat these crispy chicken tenders instead. They will give you that satisfying crunch as you sink your teeth into the moist strips of chicken. You will be seeing quite a few more healthy comfort dishes next month. Also reading a lot less moaning and groaning from me about all the curveballs life has thrown us lately. I still have a lot of blessings to count. I think I have said that before and yet …

    These sound good! I have not noticed plain rice crackers before. I cook GF,DF for some family members sometimes. Sorry for your families loss.
