This recipe comes, almost intact, from the Quick & Easy Meals 2010 Cooking with Paula Dean cookbook. Preparation time does not include the 1 hour needed for the tenders to marinate. This can be served as either an appetizer or a main course.
- 1⁄4 cup soy sauce
- 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 lbs chicken tenders
- 3⁄4 cup honey
- 3⁄4 cup chunky peanut butter
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce (yes, again)
- 2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
- 2 tablespoons peanuts, chopped (optional, for garnish)
- In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup soy sauce, olive oil, salt & pepper, then add chicken tenders, cover & refrigerate for 1 hour.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the honey, peanut butter, the last 2 tablespoons of soy sauce & the teriyaki sauce.
- Heat a large grill pan over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes or until it is smoking.
- Remove chicken from marinade & discard the marinade. Cook the tenders, turning once, for about 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.
- Garnish sauce with the chopped peanuts, if desired, & serve with the tenders.
Yum! These are quick and tasty. My grandson and I thought that adding some crushed red pepper to the sauce would be good too, so we'll try that next time. Thanks Syd for a nice treat. Made for 123 Tag.
Syd, we really enjoyed this take on a tender! I followed the recipe, as written, except, I'm a peanut lover, so I added a few more. We added a grilled potato and had a nice meal. Thanks so much for sharing!
Though I left out the salt, and the chopped peanuts for the garnish, this did make for a quick nice dinner. The sauce was very nice. Served this with one of my mashed potato recipes. Made for PRMR tag.
