NOTES :* Here's a quick, low-fat version of one of my favorites: oven-fried chicken breast tenders with honey mustard sauce.
Tenders, those little strips of meat attached to the underside of the chicken breast, are available at supermarkets. They're a smart choice for low-fat dining, having only about a third the fat of dark chicken meat.
* For this sauce, I like the texture of what some manufacturers call brown delicatessen-style mustard with white-basically, a coarser Dijon-style mustard. And it tastes great with the chicken.
* These oven-fried tenders make great appetizers or even a good light meal served with a big crunchy salad.
