My kids are always looking for quick and easy after-school snacks. Every day they come home STARVING! It’s like they haven’t eaten all day (but the cafeteria account says otherwise). They know how to use the stove and oven now (thank goodness) so it’s on them to make something unless I have something yummy already planned ahead of time.

They aren’t about to make these sandwiches on their own, but they most certainly can turn the oven to 425F, spray non-stick cooking spray onto a baking tray, and pop the chicken tenders into the oven for 15 minutes. For a quick and easy dinner on a busy weeknight though, these gluten-free chicken tender sandwiches are the perfect way to enjoy them.

CAULIPOWER’s game-changing frozen chicken tenders are baked, not fried. They start with high-quality chicken breast meat that’s coated with cauliflower and other gluten-free goodness. 

Compared to the category average, CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders have:

  • 490 calories (for the entire bag)
  • zero sugar
  • 29% fewer net carbs
  • zero saturated fat
  • 22% more protein
  • 21% more fiber

The best thing though is CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders don’t taste gluten-free. Flynn is the only gluten-free family member, so I often find myself having to cook double to accommodate the others who don’t like the taste of gluten-free foods.

“We have given chicken tenders a massive nutritional makeover that was long overdue: instead of frying them we baked them. The result is a whopping 86% less fat.” – Gail Becker, CAULIPOWER Founder and CEO

How to make gluten-free breaded chicken sandwiches

Cook the CAULIPOWER Chicken Tenders in the oven according to the package directions.
