Grilled Chicken Tenders Recipe

This is an easy to grill chicken tender’s recipe that is perfect for a delicious quick meal or as a snack. It’s easy to cook on a George Foreman Grill. You can use boneless skinless chicken breast tenderloins that are available at most grocery stores.

If they are not available you can substitute regular boneless skinless chicken breasts and gut them into strips of approximately 1 inch wide.

These tenders taste great in salads, wraps, or any other way you like to eat them.

If starting with whole breasts, use a meat mallet and pound to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. They will grill much better that way.

  1. Mix salad dressing, lime juice and honey in a bowl and add mixture in a Ziploc bag and add the chicken tenders. Marinate tenders for as long as you can. Letting them marinate overnight is even better. Otherwise, marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Preheat the George Foreman Grill on the high setting with the lid closed if you have this feature. Place the drip tray in front of the grill.
  3. When the grill is ready, add the marinated chicken tenders and close the lid.
  4. Cook chicken tenders for 5 minutes. Using a meat thermometer check that the internal temperature is 165 degrees F.
  5. Remove chicken tenders from the grill carefully as they will be hot.
  6. Turn off the grill by unplugging it or by pressing the on/off power button if your model has this feature.
  7. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and side dishes.
