Chicken Strips with Blue Cheese Dressing

For dinner Jaunary 4th, 2018

Don’t make this very often it is a little different from the usual fare. I have buttermilk on hand so this will be a good opportunity to use it up. Will slice a chicken breast into to tenders and serve with romaine lettuce. Rather than make the blue cheese dressing I will use Lighthouse “lite” dressing.
