Walnut Crusted Chicken Tenders

I have always been on the picky side when it comes to food, my friends and family would definitely agree. I have a few food "issues" and always had a long list of things I didn't like. Since I started cooking, I have tried a lot of new foods and realized that there are a lot of things on that list that are actually pretty good! (although mayo is still a no go!!!)

Nuts are number one on that list. I have recently discover that I like pecans, almonds, and walnuts. I like walnuts so much that I've been looking for new ways to use them. Tonight, I thought I would put a new spin on these oven "fried" chicken tenders.
These were good, but next time I think Id switch up the amount of walnuts and panko, making it more panko and less walnuts. It was a great flavor, but a bit overpowering.
