Cheddar Crusted Chicken Tenders

"I’m so excited to be partnering with @annieshomegrown and @thefeedfeed to share my love of great ingredients and great food! I’ve always been careful about what I put into my body, but after becoming a mom I became much more aware of the ingredients that were in our favorite foods. That is why I love @annieshomegrown. They make grocery shopping easy because I know I can trust their products. Their ingredients are organic, there are no artificial colors or preservatives, and my toddler can’t get enough of them! Head to @naturalgrocers to pick up a box of cheddar squares and get my recipe for these Cheddar Square Crusted Chicken Tenders at @thefeedfeed.
