Expert Tips

To crush the cereal, place in food processor and process with on/off pulses until fine crumbs form. The crumbs should look like bread crumbs.

Make curried ketchup to go along with your whole grain-covered chicken tenders—mix together 1/2 cup ketchup with lime juice and curry powder to taste.

Pound chicken to tenderize before cutting into strips so tenders don’t toughen during baking.
