  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 10 mins


1Rinse chicken tenders and pat dry.

2Sprinkle each herb/spice onto one side of the chicken tenders individually. How much you use is up to your personal preferences. We prefer to go light on the onion and garlic powders and heavy on the rest.

3Heat the ghee/butter and oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the chicken, seasoned side down. Once you add them to the skillet, don't move them. Cook until the edges turn opaque and white, about 3-5 minutes.

4While the chicken is in the skillet cooking, season the other side of them.

5Once the edges are white, flip the chicken tenders and cook on the other side for another 3-5 minutes, or until completely cooked through and no pink remains. Thinner tenders will take closer to 3 minutes, while thicker ones will take longer.

6Remove from the skillet and serve hot with a side of Honey Mustard or Ranch dipping sauce.

7Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week. To reheat, add some more ghee/butter and oil to a skillet, slice the tenders into bite-size pieces, and pan-fry until crispy and heated through.

Addition Serving Suggestion

1Once cooked or reheated, the sliced tenders make the perfect topping for any mixed green salad. Drizzle with the Hot Bacon Honey Mustard Dressing or regular Honey Mustard Dressing for a hearty meal.
