Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved these! We tried these last night and loved, loved, loved them! Chicken tenders are one of my favorite foods and these were easy and so very flavorful. Not sure now how I could top this recipe. You really need to try these.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Finger licking good chicken My kids love this one. It can be done in less than 30 minutes. I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 because of the step of breading the chicken and then frying but it still was very worthwhile because the kids ate it all. Tip: Instead of 'deep frying' in oil, I lightly oiled the pan (maybe a tablespoon) and then pan fried the chicken strips on each side. Its a lot easier with less mess and splatter that way. I suppose you could bake it too. Curious to hear other people's thoughts on this recipe
