Shake & Sauté Quick Easy Chicken Recipe


Prep time3 minutes


Here’s a great quick easy chicken recipe: a shake-in-the-bag recipe that takes just a few common spices (plus cornmeal) and puts a crispy flavorful coating on boneless chicken. Best of all, it's ready in less than 15 minutes!


1lbboneless chicken tenders
1TParmesan/Romano grated cheese
1tAdobo* (or salt)
1⁄2tchili powder


*This recipe uses Adobo, a blend of salt and herbs. I think of Adobo as my “reach-for-it-anytime seasoning.” You can easily substitute salt for it, although the finished dish won't have quite the same flavorful punch. QQM Adobo starts with the best-quality salt—RealSalt™—and is hand-blended with select herbs. Check out Adobo in the QQM Store.


  1. Place all ingredients in large sealable bag, seal and shake (until chicken is well-coated).
  2. In large non-stick skillet, heat 2-3 tablespoons oil over medium heat. Remove chicken from the bag and place in pan (discard any remaining cornmeal mixture). Sauté until brown and crispy, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
