"I used to love the chicken tenderloins at a well-known restaurant chain. With this recipe, I can make them at home and they are just as good!!" — Chris Plumhoff

skinless, boneless chicken breast meat
Italian-style salad dressing
fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons
I baked these instead for about 30 minutes, and they were delicious!
This recipe is really nothing to rave about. I was expecting something really good since it is supposed to be comparable to a restaurant. It wasn't bad I just wasn't impressed. Amy's Egg Garlic chicken off this site is way better!
Wooo hooo a clone of the chicken tenderloins from Cracker Barrell!!!! These were very good! I think I will marinate them more than 2 hrs like I did...in fact I'll probably let them soak overnight for maximum flavor. Also next time I wont use oil to pan fry them.... there is pleanty of oil in the itailan dressing to make it cook well. Thanks Chris for posting this recipe...it's a definate keeper!!!
Absolutely delicious. I made this for dinner with rice and a zucchini corn sidedish. My husband requested that I write this recipe down so we can have it again. I marinated chicken for longer and cooked it with some of the marinade. Fabulous!
We loved this recipe! Wonderful savory and sweet flavor. I strained the dressing and increased the honey a good bit to be more kid friendly. Didn't have lime juice so I substituted lemon juice. Marinated chicken tenders for a couple hours in a ziplock bag. Added a sprinkle of salt while cooking. Started out with a few tenders on my George Foreman grill but that was a mess to try to clean up so I sauteed the rest in a non-stick skillet, covered much of the time and near the end I added some marinade to the skillet and let it caramalize....that added a beautiful color and flavor to them!!!! My kids and husband loved them. Would also make a great sandwich. Thanks for the recipe!!
This is outstanding. This recipe makes one appear to be a superstar gourmet cook. I always like to keep a recipe of this on hand, frozen, for last minute dinners. I defrost, throw this on a bed of rice and with a salad I have a quick dinner in no time!
I am not a huge chicken fan, but this recipe is really good. We marinated our chicken over night and cooked them on the grill - they stuck to the grill a little bit. I would recommend slicing the chicken breast into fairly small pieces to get the maximum flavor out of the marinade.
These turned out really good. I put them in flatbread and added lettuce, tomato, cheese and a little more italian dressing and ate them like a soft taco! The kids loved them this way.
