Baked Herb Tortilla Chips

Have you been craving something crispy to eat lately? Then try homemade herb tortilla chips. A very quick and easy way to make crispy tortilla chips is by baking them in the oven.

I used Za’atar seasoning for a delicious Middle Eastern flavor.
Za’atar is a blend of savory dried herbs. The ingredients are sumac, sesame seeds, hyssop, and sea salt. To purchase Za’atar click here.

Alternatively, you can use salt and leave out the spices. What I love about this recipe is that the possibilities are endless.

Yum!

Baked Parmesan Pretzel Chicken

Okay, I have to admit that I love baked parmesan pretzel chicken because it is healthy and the possibilities are endless! Add the chicken strips to a salad with croutons, and you have a healthy salad. You can serve it with pasta and tomato sauce, and you have a lovely Italian dish.

Also, you can serve the chicken strips along with your favorite dipping sauce and fries on the side.

For this dish, I used dairy-free parmesan cheese and gluten-free pretzels.
But of course, you can use regular cheese and pretzels.

Warm Regards,
