Nacho Chicken with Black Bean Mango Salad

This winter at the Sweet Boy's school I donated a Good Better Best Food School Week Dinner Make Over.  I was so happy when the "F Family" bought the week and I was thrilled to be able to put together some of the Good Better Best Food greatest hits for them.  This weekend I made the "F Family" Nacho Chicken and Black Bean and Mango Salad. 

Nacho Chicken

1lb chicken tenders
2 eggs
Tortilla chips
1 package taco seasoning (I used mild McCormick)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with either cooking spray or with olive oil in a mister bottle.

Break eggs into bowl and whisk with a fork.

Fill gallon sized ziplock bag with tortilla chips,  Closed bag and crush chips with hands into small pieces.  Add Taco seasoning.  Add more chips and crush if you think you need more.

Dip chicken in egg,  two pieces at a time in the egg and then transfer to the bag with the chips and seasoning.  Close bag and shake to coat chicken.  Transfer chicken to baking sheet.  Repeat until all chicken is coated.

Bake chicken for 12-15 minutes until golden brown turning pieces at half way point.

Already Better Mango and Black Bean Salad

1 can black beans
1 cup frozen mango
2 Tbs olive oil
¼ cup white balsamic vinegar
Sea salt to taste

Drain and rinse the black beans and place in a bowl.
Defrost mango in the microwave until room temperature and add to bowl with beans.
Add olive oil and vinegar.  Salt to taste and serve.

Since the black beans are already a whole grain this dinner is already Better.  To make Best add elements of organic chicken, use organic black beans or organic chips.

I am pretty sure by looking at these photos that the "F Family" enjoyed the Best Food!  Thanks for supporting our school!

  1. I made this for my kids tonight. 6 and 3. We have an egg allergy here so I just rinsed the chicken and threw it in the bag of crushed chips! Delicious! Huge hit with the kids and mom!

    Also, we didn't have white balsamic (my mistake) and I just used regular balsamic and it was delicious!

    I will be making this often!
