Smoky Grilled Chicken Tenders

This recipe for Smoky Chicken Tenders, served with Potato Salad was a spur of the moment meal idea, that turned into a quick favorite. The ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ combination of hot grilled chicken with cold delicious potato salad has won everyone over around here. We are all looking for those quick and easy meal plans, aren’t we?  Those that are hassle free yet tasty! This fits the bill and is great to pack for a picnic as well.

Chicken tenders / tenderloins are the slender strips of additional meat hanging from the bottom-side of chicken breasts. There would thus be two tenders per bird. They are often sold separately from chicken breasts at the supermarket, often coming in thermo-packs of 5-6 strips. Sometimes labeled as chicken fillet. These cuts of chicken are quite cheap and can be used for frying (chicken strips) or cut up in stir fries or grilled as I have done. Cooked properly they remain  moist and tender. This is my favorite quick recipe using chicken tenders.

  • Allow to marinate at room temperature, briefly while you prepare the potato salad.

  • When moderately hot, place the tenders on the grill pan with  1/2 an inch between the strips. Grill on medium till the bottom is golden. Repeat on second side. Do not over grill. It should take only 2-3 minutes per side.  Keep on medium heat to avoid blackening of the sliced onion.

  • To serve : Place assorted salad leaves or lettuce on side of plate,  topped with chilled potato salad. Place Grilled smoky Chicken tenders on centre. Enjoy with some sparkling juice!
