So let’s get started making Grilled Lemon Chicken Tenders.

Grilled Lemon Chicken Tenders

Place 2 lbs. of chicken tenders in a gallon-size resealable plastic bag (like a ziploc).

Pour in the juice from 2 lemons, 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 teaspoons lemon pepper, 1 teaspoon dried basil, 1 teaspoon dried oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Shake it a bit so all the chicken tenders get covered.

Let marinate in the fridge for 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.

Heat an outdoor gas grill over high heat.

Sear the chick for 2 minutes on each side and continue cooking until cooked through. This should take about 5 minutes or less.

Chicken tenders cook quickly on the grill.

Don’t have a grill handy, you can heat a heavy skillet over high heat.
