Cracker Barrel Grilled Chicken Tenderloins
(without the grill)
Oh so finger licking good, with an ooey gooey glaze that is just to die for - just another great country dish from Cracker Barrel!
4 - 5 chicken breasts, cut into pieces or 12 chicken tenderloins
1 - 8 oz bottle Italian Dressing (I prefer zesty italian)
2 - teaspoons fresh or bottled lime juice
4 - teaspoons honey
Cut each chicken breast into strips or use tenderloins pieces. If using tenderloins cut and remove the white tendon off each end.
In a bowl that has a cover or large Ziploc bag add the dressing, lime juice and honey; mix to combine.
Add the chicken and mix to coat all the pieces. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
Remove chicken from the refrigerator and add to a large skillet (marinade and chicken).
Cook the tenders in a non-stick pan uncovered until golden brown in color, but not dry. Start the stove temperature at medium-high to get things going.
After the mixture comes to a boil reduce the heat to medium-low and continue cooking.
You just want them to simmer until all the liquid has cooked down (this can take up to 40 minutes).
You still want a bit of glaze left in the pan. When chicken is done remove and serve.
