Lime-Ginger Chicken Tenders Recipe

Lime-Ginger Chicken Tenders Recipe

We cook a lot of boneless, skinless chicken breasts because they're low in fat, high in protein, and almost always a smart buy at the grocery store. To keep things exciting, I add a few of our favorites to the mix like jalapenos, lime and fresh ginger. —Samantha Anderson, Fort Worth, Texas
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons minced fresh gingerroot
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons grated lime peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1-1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins


  • 1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large bowl, mix the first nine ingredients. Add chicken; toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Bake, uncovered, 20-25 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

"Really quick and tasty. Could be eaten as fajitas or with rice, beans, and salsa. We had it with low carb spaghetti seasoned with olive oil, salt, and pepper and a sprinkle of an Italian 5 cheese blend. Served a side dish of steamed baby carrots and broccoli. I could also serving this with Asian vegetable and rice or rice noodles."
