With summer fast approaching, I have already started meal planning for grilling season. Last month I spotted a sale on chicken that was too good to pass up so I stocked my deep freezer with it. Looks like chicken will be on the menu for lunch and dinner a lot this summer. No complaints here though because chicken is one of my favorite foods to grill.

Barbecue Grilled Chicken Tenders Recipe

Chicken is pretty simple to make, and when cooked properly it produces delicious results. Like with the barbecue grilled chicken tenders recipe that I am sharing with you today. They are so dang good!

Barbecue Grilled Chicken Tenders Recipe

I make these chicken tenders a lot during the year because they are easy to make, and great for every day dinners. Plus, they are great for indoor grilling when you don’t want to deal with the outdoor grill. They are also the perfect size for finger foods, and so simple that your whole family will love them. These take around 25 minutes to make from start to finish. Best of all it requires ingredients that you most likely already have on hand.
