There’s something so satisfying about traditional chicken tenders and the simple pleasure of dipping them, then taking a bite into its crisp golden crust. It’s comfort food at its finest and should be enjoyed by everyone. These chicken tenders use Breton Gluten-free original with flax crackers as the breading so even those with a gluten sensitivity can enjoy some of life’s simple pleasures.



Breton crackers, which are made with arrowroot flour and green lentil flour, add a nice crunchy exterior to the chicken. With the addition of the spices the chicken tenders are so flavorful it’s hard to believe they’re gluten free!
