Chicken tenders are commonly a bar food, but have many more applications aside from dipping. Try utilizing this kid-favorite in more sophisticated options:

 > Use in classic chicken dishes like Chicken Cordon Bleu, Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Cacciatora, Chicken Fricassee or Chicken Pot Pie.

> Use in place of turkey for a chicken Cobb salad.

> Chop and use in rice bowls, stir-frys, noodle dishes, nachos, tacos or burritos.

> Top a slider bun with chicken, buffalo wing sauce, crumbled blue cheese, shredded carrots and sliced green onions for Buffalo Chicken Sliders.

> Make BBQ Chicken Pizza with a pizza shell, BBQ sauce, chopped chicken tenders, chopped cooked bacon, chopped red onion and mozzarella cheese.

> Create Asian Chicken Lettuce Wraps by finely chopping chicken tenders and mixing with a combination of Asian ingredients like chopped garlic, sesame oil, hoisin sauce, rice vinegar, soy sauce, chopped shiitake mushrooms, fresh lime juice, chopped water chestnuts, sliced green onions and chopped cilantro, and serve in Boston or iceberg lettuce leaves.

> Place chicken tenders in a hoagie, wrap or sub bun with classic toppings for Chicken Parmesan Heros or a Chicken Po’ Boy.
