Honey Garlic Butter Chicken Tenders

These Chicken Tenders are ABSOLUTELY DIVINE! Sweet and Buttery…Golden Brown Crispy outer while staying nice and Tender-Juicy inside!

I suggest cooking up several batches of those, eating some while they’re hot for dinner alongside some rice and broccoli, then packing up the remainder up into meal prep containers and storing them in your fridge for quick meals all week long!

In a medium glass bowl, whisk melted butter/ghee, garlic, vinegar and honey. Add within the chicken tenders and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Toss/stir until all tenders are nicely coated.

Allow to take a seat and marinate flavors for 5-10 minutes. Heat vegetable oil during a large skillet over medium heat. Add chicken tenders during a single layer to the pan and cook until golden brown on each side, about 8 minutes total.

You might got to cook these chicken tenders in two batches to avoid overcrowding the pan, which prevents that nice golden brown color.
