Reviews for Spicy Chicken Tenders
"Excellent recipe, my husband absolutely LOVED it and it's become a "regular" on our menu. It is so easy to prepare, too! I've actually been cooking it in a pan on the stovetop and that has worked out well, I keep it covered so that I don't lose the juiciness of the chicken. I also marinate in a glass or stainless bowl for 30+ minutes and I like the amount of spice it retains. I've been serving it with a garlic brown rice and quinoa mix as well as ~12oz of edamame (soybeans) that I saute with a tablespoon of butter, some minced garlic, sea salt, black pepper, and a drizzle of sriracha sauce. It ends up being a flavorful, filling, healthy meal that fills the kitchen with a delicious aroma. Easy + healthy + delicious = a keeper for me!"
"I tried these tonight for dinner...they were great! Quick to prepare, moist tenders with a great flavor. I did have to cook them a little longer than suggested, but I might not have had the pan as close to the broiler as suggested."
"This was amazing. Will make again!!"
"its delicious and yummy"
