Tonight: Cheez-It Chicken Fingers and Skillet-Braised Brussels Sprouts (recipes)
Cheez-It Chicken Fingers

1 cups (3 oz) Cheez-It cheddar crackers (I used Reduced Fat)
tsp black pepper
1 lb raw chicken tenders
1/3 cup honey mustard dressing (I used Light)
cooking spray

Put rack in lower third of oven; preheat to 475F. Line a baking pan with nonstick aluminum foil. Pulse crackers in a food processor. Transfer to a bowl; stir in pepper. Toss tenders in mustard, then dredge in crumbs. Arrange on pan. Spray tenders with cooking spray. Bake, turning once, until golden brown, 15 minutes.

Skillet-Braised Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Shallots
4 servings

4 ounces bacon (4-slices), chopped fine
2 shallots, sliced thin
1 pound Brussels sprouts, stem ends trimmed, discolored leaves removed and halved through the stem
cup water
Salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Pepper

Cook the bacon and shallots together in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat until the bacon is crisp and the shallots are browned, about 10 minutes Transfer the mixture to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

Add the Brussels sprouts, water and teaspoon salt to the skillet and increase the heat to medium-high. Cover and simmer until the Brussels sprouts are bright green, about 9 minutes.

Uncover the pan and cook until the liquid has evaporated and the sprouts are tender, about 5 minutes longer.

Turn off the heat, stir in the bacon mixture, butter and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste before serving.
