I love this marinade, it permeates the grilled chicken tenders and has a great flavor. I usually grill extra for leftovers... perfect for salads and sandwiches.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Remove chicken from the marinade and shake off excess. Discard the remaining marinade.

  • Place chicken on the grill and reduce heat to low. Cook for 1 minute, then turn and grill until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 4 to 6 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

So simple and good. I only had two hours and it still came out super flavorful. This makes enough marinade to cover 1 1/2 to 2 pounds of chicken tenders. The only change I will make next time is to reduce the water to 1/2 cup. You also need to leave the chicken on the grill longer than a minute before the flip if you want nice grill marks. Read More
