My kids can’t seem to get enough of my Crispy Baked Chicken Tenders, but there are those busy weeknights when breading and baking chicken is just not in the cards. Luckily, a few months ago I stumbled upon this fun recipe for grilled chicken tenders that my kids love just as much, but can be created in a few minutes of easy preparation time. We have been eating these about once a week ever since we tried this recipe and it is a hit every single time.
This is a knock-off recipe of Cracker Barrel’s grilled chicken tenders. I will admit though that I have never actually tried Cracker Barrel’s grilled chicken anything. If I spend the money to go out to dinner there it is fully spent on chicken & dumplings, fried okra, biscuits, and everything else breaded and delicious. If these tenders taste anything like what they serve in the restaurant though, I know that they would be a fun alternative to plates of fried foods.
Made from ingredients that are likely already in your refrigerator and pantry right now, these simple ingredients are exceptionally delicious and create a flavorful & juicy chicken tender that you will absolutely love. This recipe yields a pound’s worth of tenders. I triple the batch for salad topping and grilled chicken wraps that make easy weekday lunches or a busy weeknight dinner. My problem is getting the family to stop eating them so we have some leftovers on hand. I hope you will enjoy these as much as we have!
