Get Ready For Game Day With #Naturally Fresh and Crispy Ranch Chicken Fingers! #Recipe #Blogger #Natural #Food

Disclosure: This post is part of the blogger program by Naturally Fresh® and The Motherhood, who compensated me for my time and the development of this recipe. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

It's hard to believe that it's almost Super Bowl time! Now, I don't really care much (anything) about football, but I do care about good food and good friends! So, when we got the chance to try out some Naturally Fresh salad dressings for Super Bowl recipes, I was so excited! Naturally Fresh is a line of high-quality, homemade-tasting salad dressings and dips with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives and they are delicious! Available in four varieties, Classic Ranch, Lite Ranch, Blue Cheese and Lite Bleu Cheese, Naturally Fresh Salad Dressings and Dips can be found at your local Kroger or Publix, check out the Naturally Fresh Mobile App to find a store near you. It was so easy to find Naturally Fresh dressings at our local Kroger store, and they were even on a fabulous Buy One, Get One Free sale the day we visited! What's not to love about that!? 

We got to spend some time trying out Naturally Fresh dressings in our home, and had a great time coming up with some fabulous recipes! Our very favorite recipe we came up with, however, was one the whole family loved! Our Crispy Ranch Chicken Fingers were a huge hit with the whole family, and the kids especially loved them! This is a super easy recipe to prepare, and is great for a quick weeknight dinner, or perfect for a super bowl snack when you serve them up with some buffalo sauce for dipping! We also had tons of leftover chicken, and it was perfect to use the next day as a topping for baked spaghetti, it turned out kind of like a Chicken Parm bake, and it was delicious! As you can see, Naturally Fresh dressings are so versatile, and you can really use them for anything! Here's how to make some of your own! 

Crispy Ranch Chicken Tenders

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast tenders
1 bottle Naturally Fresh Ranch Salad Dressing
1 cup Panko or your favorite bread crumb
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoned salt 
1 teaspoon black pepper
cooking spray 
your favorite dipping sauces

Marinate chicken tenders in ranch dressing overnight. When ready to prepare, combine panko, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, seasoned salt, black pepper in a small bowl, and pour onto deep plate for dipping. Remove chicken from ranch dressing, and dip into bread crumb mixture. Place chicken on sprayed baking sheet. Add an additional sprinkle of Parmesan cheese if desired, and lightly spray chicken with cooking spray. Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Serve with your favorite dipping sauces.

Introducing the Master Lock “Safety Through Every Life Season” #MasterLockProtects Twitter sweepstakes/donation opportunity!!!! #Blog #Review

 This post has been sponsored by Global Influence. All opinions are my own.

I guess you could say safety and security have always been at the top of my mind. I mean, I AM the Flip Out Mama. I stress over everything, even the littlest things that no one else would even consider worrying about. It's sort of crazy, but I have become accustomed to my crazy worrying ways. So much so, that when I have nothing to stress about, I worry about why I'm not worrying! I mean, look at those beautiful boys, I worry every second of every day about taking care of them.

One company that really understands people like me is the American Red Cross. The Red Cross does so much for so many people, and they are always there when bad things happen. That's why it's so great that Master Lock is now teaming up with The American Red Cross for the Master Lock “Safety Through Every Life Season” #MasterLockProtects Twitter sweepstakes/donation opportunity. Sound interesting? Here's more info:

Master Lock, the world’s largest manufacturer of padlocks,  announced its continued focus on helping consumers stay safe with a yearlong campaign dedicated to safety through every life stage and season. To kick off the campaign, Master Lock will ask consumers via Twitter to share the time in their life when safety and security has been most top of mind. For every tweet posted with the hashtag #MasterLockProtects a $1 donation will be made to the American Red Cross up to $10,000. The campaign will continue throughout the year with a series of safety tips and advice for every life stage and season.   

“Each new life stage and season brings new adventures, excitement and memories. It also brings new safety and security considerations. From childhood, to marriage, homeownership, retirement and beyond, Master Lock is there to help protect consumers as their security needs evolve with these memorable life events,” said Rebecca Smith, vice president, marketing for Master Lock. “Through this campaign, Master Lock will show its dedication to providing a full range of reliable, easy-to-use products as well as resources consumers need to keep themselves, loved ones and valuables safe throughout the year and their lives.”

When in your life has safety and security been most top of mind? Through January 31, participants who tweet their reply to this question using #MasterLockProtects will generate a $1 donation to the American Red Cross and will be entered for the chance to win one of 20 prize bundles. Each winner will receive a $100 Visa gift card and various Master Lock products to help keep consumers safe through different life stages and seasons. 

Master Lock will donate an initial $10,000 to the American Red Cross and will donate up to an additional $10,000 based on consumer participation in the sweepstakes for a total of $20,000 in donations – just one way the company hopes to keep consumers safe and secure through all life stages and seasons. Master Lock’s donation will support the urgent needs of the American Red Cross mission, whether it is responding to a disaster, collecting lifesaving blood, teaching skills to save a life, or assisting military members and their families during emergencies. This marks the second Twitter sweepstakes that Master Lock has hosted to benefit the American Red Cross. In 2014, Master Lock donated more than $15,000 to the organization.
