During the summer months I’m all about grilling and fresh salads filled with seasonal ingredients; however as the weather cools down I crave comfort food. And my family is totally on board with comfort food! Who isn’t? But many recipes that are warm and comforting also tend to be heavier and full of calories, which isn’t great. Well, meet the new chick on the block: delicious CAULIPOWER frozen chicken tenders!
