! 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp spicy spice mix, no salt added (I prefer trader joe's bqq spice mix)
2 tbsp paprika, for daring red color
salt and pepper
1 bag frozen peas
a dab of butter
Line a baking sheetwith foil, (a dark baking sheet is best) toss chicken, spices, salt and olive oil together. Spread chicken out on the baking sheet and bake for 15 min, in a 425 oven. (Or til done if you have an oven that likes to take its time).
Heat up the frozen peas with a dab of butter, and a little salt and pepper. When warm, smash with a potato masher.
Leftover chicken can also be served on salad the next day with a vinaigrette, avocados, lettuce and tomatoes.
Leftover smashed peas can be served on pasta with pine nuts, parmesan, and extra pepper.
