Crispy Ranch Chicken Tenders with Sweet Potato Wedges
I make chicken in my crock pot all the time, but rarely in the oven. Since it is just myself and my toddler for dinner tonight, I decided to make something kid friendly and simple. I was also in the mood for oven fries but wanted something healthier so I used sweet potatoes instead. My husband hates them so I never have them and since he wasn't home I figured why not? The chicken was so crispy and flavorful and the sweet potato wedges were a big hit with the little guy!
