Heck Yes Chicken!!

We eat a lot of chicken around here. I mean A LOT. Like almost every meal. But  I pretend that it is not chicken. Well, it's chicken. But not from our feathery friends. No. I would never eat a poor lil chicky. I don't know where I think it actually comes from. I mean, I know it is chicken. But to me its not. So don't tell me the truth, okay? Just let me keep on pretending that chicken doesn't come from chickens. :) Good.
Moving on.

Heck Yes Chicken (Why the name? I dunno... i was creating it, it smelled good, and I said, "Heck Yes!")
(Note: Remember... most of the time  sometimes I don't measure? Well, I didn't. so just sprinkle and pour and have fun!)

Smoked paprika
ground mustard
Salt ( I used sea salt)
Ground red pepper
Worcestershire sauce
Boneless/Skinless Chicken Tenders (I bought mine on sale for $1.88/pound!-WAHOO!)
Salt not pictured. It was too shy for the camera. ;)
Okay, so Sprinkle chicken liberally with all the spices. If you don't like heat, then cut back or skip the ground red pepper. If you are using sea salt like I did, don't be so liberal with it. Drip some worchertershire on top of that. Heat oil in a skillet. ( med/high) Place tenders spice side down in skillet. Now season the side facing up. Flip half way through about 3-5 minutes on each side depending on thickness of chicken. Just make sure juices are running clear. YUM!
TIP: Don't overcrowd our skillet, the chicken will brown better this way.


  1. Sounds great! We eat a lot of chicken too...and I am completely in denial about where it comes from. I was just thinking about that the other day, I'm glad I'm not the only one.

  2. @Breana- I am so glad that I am not the only one!!! we can be delusional together! :) :) :)
