Sauteed chicken tenders get a flavor boost from fresh lemon and thyme. Great as a main meal or as a salad topper.

My family thought this was really good. I did not have fresh garlic or thyme so I used 1 tbsp garlic powder and 1 tbsp dried thyme. Also I did not have a fresh lemon on hand so no lemon zest. However we found that it had a great lemony flavor without the zest. Very flavorful but I'm sure it would have been even better with fresh ingredients. Did I forget to mention this recpe is SUPER EASY AND QUICK!! 5 stars! Read More

Easy to make and lightly flavored chicken. Did not have lemon zest flavored cooking spray or fresh thyme (used jar) but came out great. We'll make these more! Read More

Like many others I didn't have the fresh garlic thyme or lemon zest. I used 1 tbsp garlic powder 1 tsp ground thyme & abt 2tsp lemon pepper. Olive oil was also substituted with canola oil....yet it STILL came out Fabulous! Marinated the chicken for close to 30 minutes as I prepared the alfredo pasta..then baked chicken @ 350 for 30 minutes. It was an amazing combo! Read More

Very good! I used the recipe but instead of cooking in a skillet we took it outside to grill. I made kabobs with onion and green peppers to separate the chicken and it turned out great! Read More

Very good. I used chicken breast instead of tenders though and ran into the issue of one of the breasts being too thick. It was a bit dry but that was my own fault. The recipe was great! Will definitely use it again! Read More

I'd give this 3 1/2 stars if I could. This was really very lemony. I do enjoy lemon but this much lemon was a bit much. My husband really didn't care for this and didn't finish his. I might try this again but cut the lemon juice by half and just let them marinate for two or three minutes. Read More
