Menu Monday: Low-Cal Chicken Tenders & Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Another MEAL under 500 calories! Chicken tenders and mashed sweet potatoes. These were not only yummy, but also filling!


1 pound chicken tenderloins
1 cup egg white substitute
2 cups Special K cereal
seasoned salt (optional)
garlic powder (optional)

Preheat oven 375. Spray baking sheet with PAM. Mash up the Special K cereal in a zip lock baggie with your choice of seasoning, pour onto a clean, dry plate. Dip each tenderloin in the egg whites and then roll in the Special K. Place tenderloins on the baking sheet. Sprinke any left over cereal on any gaps in the chicken. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in the center of the tenderloin.
Serve with ketchup, fat-free ranch or make your own low-fat honey mustard.
I made mashed sweet potatoes to go with the chicken tenders. All you do is boil 2 quartered sweet potatoes (you don't have to peel them) and mash with a little bit of milk. Add splenda if you want them sweeter.
