Instructions to make Crispy Chicken Tenders and Steamed Asparagus:
  1. Wash the chicken breasts thoroughly in a colander under running water. Shake off the excess water.
  2. Butterfly the chicken breasts. (Cut open the chicken breasts) with the help of a sharp knife. Further, cut them into halves. Now, you have 4 thin strips from each chicken breast.
  3. Note: Butterflying is a really useful technique to create a uniform thickness throughout a piece of meat, so that it will cook more quickly and evenly.
  4. Combine the all purpose flour, cornstarch, 1 Teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon red chilli powder, onion powder & garlic powder in a large plate.
  5. Beat the eggs in a medium mixing bowl. - - Place the bread crumbs in a dinner plate. - Add 1 teaspoon red chilli powder, 1 teaspoon salt & the cilantro.
  6. Dredge all the chicken breasts in the flour mixture at once. - Dip them one by one in the beaten egg. - Roll in the breadcrumbs to coat well.
  7. Heat oil in a large nonstick pan. Medium-high heat. - - Cook the chicken breasts 5 minutes per side until golden & crisp. Flip a few times. - When almost done, add the butter in the middle of the pan. Lift the pan & do a swirling motion to spread the melted butter all over the pan. The butter at the end takes it to a few notches up. Total bliss!
  8. Serve immediately with steamed veggies of your choice. Asparagus, broccoli, beans, baby carrots, peas are some suggestions.
  9. To steam the Asparagus: - - Cut off about an inch of the hard stem & discard. Cut into two or into small, bite size pieces, if you wish to. Wash thoroughly. - - Heat water in a medium skillet/pan. - When the water comes to a rolling boil, turn the heat off.
  10. Drop the asparagus in the hot water. Cover & leave for 5-6 minutes. I love it crunchy.
  11. Drain the water. Serve hot with a sprinkle of salt & freshly milled pepper. - - Enjoy!

These changes can be done with all kinds of foods and can apply to the oils you cook in and the spread you put on bread. Olive oil, for example, is loaded with monounsaturated fats which are basically good fats that counter the effects of bad cholesterol. Olive oil also provides vitamin E which is beneficial for your skin, among other things. While you may already eat a great deal of fruits and leafy greens, you may want to consider how fresh they are. If you decide to eat organic foods, you can avoid the problem of consuming crops that may have been sprayed with deadly pesticides. You will be sure that you’re getting the most nutritional benefits from your fresh produce if you can find a local supplier because you will be able to purchase the fruit when it is the freshest and ripest. Thus, it should be quite obvious that it’s not at all difficult to add healthy eating to your everyday life.
