Here is a healthier version of kids’ favorite (or maybe your favorite)!


1 pound boneless, skinless chicken tenders
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 tablespoon harissa (or other hot sauce of your choice; certified gluten-free if necessary)
1 1/2 cups unsweetened brown rice cereal (certified gluten-free if necessary)
1 teaspoon sesame seeds, toasted
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper


Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet or stone with parchment and a wire rack.

In a shallow medium bowl, stir together the yogurt and harissa until well-blended.

Place the brown rice cereal in a plastic baggie and pound/smash to crush. Once your cereal is crushed add it to a shallow bowl with the sesame seeds, parsley, garlic powder, sea salt and pepper.

Dredge the chicken tenders in the yogurt mixture, wiping off any access and then dip them into the brown rice cereal mixture. Roll until tender is covered completely. Place the cereal coated tenders on the wire rack on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and chicken is completely cooked through.

Remove tenders from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving.

    "If you want to WIN more in life you are in the right place my friend! I am blessed and privileged everyday to help people WIN more in life.

    I got my start as the youngest Director of Strength & Conditioning at the Division I level at Oral Roberts University and have been blessed to COACH professional athletes from the NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, and WNBA through Dynamic Sports Development. As an ENTREPRENEUR I then started Bootcamp Tulsa to help women WIN in their Fitness, Nutrition & in Life. On a daily basis I now run our Non-Profit, 501 (c) (3), Fit First Responders serving those that serve us everyday, our Police Officers, Firefighters, Medics and national Guard.

    If I'm not helping people WIN through my Performance Coaching you will find me motivating people on stage through my MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKING in churches, companies, universities and athletic organizations. I even took some of that motivation and combined it with a winning game plan to author a few books. I love helping people WIN but there is nothing I'm more passionate about then being a FATHER to my beautiful daughter and a HUSBAND to my hot wife."
