Chicken tenders


Who has not tried Cracker Barrel's chicken tenders. Wife loves them so we found a copy cat recipe and gave it a try. Well it was close but still missing something.
Now we did cook in skillet instead of grilling but the taste was a little off. Most people in the comment sections said they were better grilled. Maybe a splash of teriyaki sauce would do the trick and a little red pepper flakes. Any way they were good with a hot biscuit and easy and quick for a week night. We also did half of the recipe just for the two of us.

1lb ck tenders
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1 teaspoon lime juice
1 1/2 honey

Mix dressing lime,chicken and honey in plastic bag and marinate for one hour.
Cook in pan or on grill until golden brown.

No doubt the chicken tenders were good. I know that I would enjoy them. A bit of teriyaki would be a nice addition.

Cheers.
