For the Barbecue Glazed Chicken:

  1. Trim visible fat from chicken and pat dry.
  2. Spray skillet or frying pan with cooking spray and turn to medium-high heat. Add chicken to skillet, cook 4 minutes, flip chicken and cook an additional 3-4 minutes until no longer pink.
  3. In a small bowl mix barbeque sauce and marmalade/jam/jelly. Microwave covered at 60% power for 40 seconds. Use a spoon to spread sauce evenly over chicken tenders.

For the Oven Fries:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray a nonstick cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Scrub potatoes (you can peel the potatoes if you don't like the skin) and cut into 1/8- to 1/4-inch strips. Arrange potatoes evenly in pan.
  3. In a cup, combine garlic powder, paprika, and pepper. Sprinkle evenly over potatoes.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.

Cooking Tip: Cut the chicken into bit-size pieces and serve on whole-wheat tortillas for tangy chicken tacos!
