As a rule, if meat makes its way into my grocery cart it’s first been labeled with a bright yellow sticker that reads MANAGERS SPECIAL. This weeks mystery meat was chicken breast tenderloins, 3lbs for $4.27, SOLD! I cooked all three pounds in a skillet first used to soften half an onion. This dish was the third and final meal yielded from the bird, so it was time to spice it up.
I chopped the chicken fingers without their batter, then tossed them in a medium high olive oil coated skillet with what was left of their onion friends to let them get a fresh caramel crust.
Once they looked delicious, I threw in half a chopped tomato on its last leg and the tail end of a bag of spinach ready to turn. For flavor, sprinkle in your desired amount of black pepper and just a little salt. put a lid on the pan, turn off the heat, give it a shake, and wait 3 to 5 minutes until its ready for your bowl.
Top the dish with the heal of a loaf of bread, toasted then chopped. Think of it as crappy crouton if you’d like. It’s what I had and delightfully delicious.
