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 make them often for my family. They are tasty, affordable, and easy to make.
Should I marinate the chicken prior to grilling?
If you have time, marinate the chicken tenders for an hour in the fridge before grilling. But you don’t have to. I usually simply brush the marinade over the chicken pieces and grill. The chicken comes out perfectly juicy and very flavorful.
How long to grill the chicken tenders?
This would depend on the grill you use. In my George Foreman grill, I grill them for a total of 4 minutes. In a grill pan, you will probably need to grill for about 3 minutes on each side.
What to serve with grilled chicken tenders?
Is this a healthy recipe?
I think it is. Chicken is healthy, especially if you use organic chicken. I use just 1 tablespoon of honey when making the marinade for these grilled chicken tenders, so the end result is low carb.
What about leftovers?
Leftovers keep in the fridge, in a sealed container, for 3-4 days. I don’t like to reheat them though, because reheating dries them out. So I shred them and use them as a salad topping or in a lettuce wrap sandwich.
