Trader Joe's Product O' the Whenever: Sundried Tomato Chicken Tenders

Last week at Trader Joe's, I experienced a revelation of deliciousness that needed to be shared with the masses.

The wonderful man who does the demo cooking at TJ's whipped up a sandwich that can only be described as heaven on a baguette. The main ingredient is our product 'o the whenever:

Trader Joe's Sundried Tomato and Basil Chicken Tenders

As the name suggests, they are delectably marinated chicken tenders that cook up super quick.

As for the sandwich I mentioned, it was a Sundried Tomato Chicken Bruschetta Sandwich. All I have to say is, thank you, Trader Joe's Employee for discovering this culinary creation. You are the Christopher Columbus of sandwiches, and I salute you.

To make the sandwich, first bake or broil your chicken tenders until just cooked though. I broiled mine on a foil lined baking sheet for about 5 minutes. Once cooked, remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the tenders hang out for just a few minutes before cutting them into bite-sized pieces.

Next slice a baguette lengthwise and then into smaller sections. Lay the baguette halves on a baking sheet. Top with your chopped chicken, then spoon on some of this crazy goodness:

This bruschetta sauce really is to DIE for.

No, seriously, I would die for it. Not even joking.

After you've spooned till you just can't spoon no mo', top everything off with some sliced provolone cheese.

Now pop that bad boy in the oven at 375 for 5-7 minutes, until the cheese is nice and melted and everything is heated through.

And there you have it. A delicious sandwich made with a delicious product o' the whenever.

Oh, and if you fall in love with these chicken tenders and want to try them in other ways, consider grilling them and serving alongside this pasta salad for a full-out sundried tomato jubilee!

  1. This post is super old but...I read your post and allotted myself exactly 5 minutes to broil the chicken tenders. There is no way they book in 5 minutes! I had set on HI with the tenders sitting on the highest rack and it still took 20 minutes and turning over the meat.
