Cracker Barrel Chicken Tenderloin
Flavorful and tender chicken is marinated in a simple marinate that you probably have all of the ingredients in your kitchen! This will become one of your go-to recipes.
- 4 to 5 chicken breasts, cut into pieces or 12 chicken tenderloins
- 1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian dressing, about 1 cup
- 2 teaspoons fresh or bottled lime juice
- 4 teaspoons honey
Preparation time 45mins
Cut each chicken breast into strips or use tenderloins pieces. If using tenderloins cut and remove the white tendon off each end.
In a bowl that has a cover or large Ziploc bag add the dressing, lime juice and honey; mix to combine.
Add the chicken and mix to coat all the pieces. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Remove chicken from the refrigerator and add to a larger skillet (marinade and chicken).
Braise the tenders in a non-stick pan until golden brown in color, but not dry. Start the stove temperature at medium high to get things going.
After it comes to a boil reduce the heat to low-medium and continue cooking.
You just want them to simmer until all the liquid has cooked down.
You still want a bit of glaze left in the pan. When chicken is done remove and serve.
Cooking time: 40-45 minutes
