Food Facts

Tenderloin is perfect for casual entertaining. Since it is very lean and extremely tender, it can be used in any dish calling for boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Great Substitute

For a great week-day meal, prepare as directed, substituting 4 boneless pork chops (4 oz. each) for the tenderloin. Reduce baking time to 30 minutes or until chops are cooked through.
