An easy recipe for very tasty grilled chicken tenders, marinated in an olive oil, honey and hot sauce marinade.
These grilled chicken tenders are delicious and very easy to make. The sweet-spicy marinade is wonderful.
I use just 1 tablespoon of honey when making the marinade for these grilled chicken tenders, so the end result is still low carb. If you prefer, you could try using a low carb honey substitute.
If you have time, marinate the chicken tenders for an hour in the fridge before grilling. But you don’t have to – I simply brushed the marinade over the chicken pieces and grilled. The grilled chicken tenders came out perfectly juicy and very flavorful.
How long to grill depends on the grill you use. In my George Foreman grill, I gril for a total of 4 minutes. In a grill pan, you will probably need to grill for about 3 minutes on each side.
Leftovers keep for 3 days in the fridge. I don’t like to reheat them though, because reheating dries them out, so I shred them and use them as a salad topping.
What to serve with these grilled chicken tenders? They go really well with so many side dishes. But a couple of my favorite side dishes to serve with them are watermelon feta salad and olive oil broccoli salad.
Another chicken tenders recipe that I really like is this recipe for baked chicken tenders. It’s more work, for sure, but it’s very good.
