Nutty Ranch Chicken Strips
Preheat oven to 400°F and spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place Blue Diamond Nut Thins in a gallon-size bag and fold over the top. Crush with a rolling pin until chips are in tiny pieces. Add Blue Diamond Almonds and dry ranch dressing mix to bag and shake well to mix.
Stir together ranch dressing and butter in another medium bowl. Dip each chicken tender in ranch dressing and shake off excess. Roll in chip mixture, pressing into the surface to coat well; place on prepared baking sheet. Coat with nonstick cooking spray and bake for 10 minutes. Coat with cooking spray again and cook for 10 minutes more. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Quick tip: Any of the coating mixture that falls off the chicken after cooking is great sprinkled over a tossed green salad or mashed potatoes.
