Your toaster oven is capable of producing so many more tasty meals than just toasted sandwiches and frozen pizza. Most toaster ovens come with a convection fan to promote even cooking. It’s more energy efficient than a regular oven because it heats up faster, not to mention that it can make foods crispy in no time at all. It’s the perfect kitchen appliance to rely on when temperatures rise in the summer and you don’t want to heat up the kitchen.

You'll need
  • 7 oz chicken strips (tenders) or wings
  • Nonstick spray
  • Sea salt, black pepper, barbeque flavor seasoning
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp pure honey
