Mealtime Monday: Sesame Chicken Tenders

Posted on

Happy Mealtime Monday! It has been a busy couple of weeks!  Spent a week in South Lake Tahoe, went back to work for a couple days, flew out to Indianapolis for a conference and then went to a co-workers wedding last night.  Talk about two exhausting weeks!  I’ll try my best to get a few pics up of the trips this week. Today I am sharing a great Rachel Ray recipe, honey mustard sesame chicken tenders.
