These chicken tenders have a barbecue base but are elevated with a decidedly Asian influence. I use Savory Spice(R) Asian Delight BBQ Rub, which is different from Chinese five-spice.



Original recipe yields 4 servings
The ingredient list now reflects the servings specified


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray an 8x8-inch casserole dish with cooking spray.

  • Combine barbeque sauce, barbeque seasoning, and caramel sauce in a shallow dish. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the mixture.

  • Dip each chicken tender into the barbeque sauce mixture and coat thoroughly. Place in the prepared casserole dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 25 minutes. Baste with reserved sauce and continue baking for 5 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

I have become obsessed with chicken tenders so tried this recipe. First time I made it, the suggested Asian spice rub was not available at my grocery store so I substituted a Vietnamese dry rub they carried. It was just ok. But I took a chance and ordered the suggested spice online and wow did it make a difference! Loved the recipe second time around. I double the sauce because I buy a larger package of tenders. Very tasty, easy to do, moist chicken---what's not to like! Read More
