What an easy recipe. I used no fat Italian dressing, Lime juice, pan fried and to get them golden I added 2 tbsp of Vermouth to the pan when they were just ready and let them sizzle for a minute - This is a taste treat

Made these earlier this week for dinner. I didn't have any limes, so I used the juice of a half lemon and followed the rest of the recipe as stated. The results were amazing - the tenders tasted and looked just like CB! I will make these again and again.

Fantastic! I used whole chicken breasts instead of tenders but otherwise followed the recipe. The chicken was so tasty and it did taste just like CB's grilled chicken tenders. Thanks for the great recipe!

I mixed the ingredients together a few days prior to marinating it on the chicken. I was really impressed after I made the chicken how much it tasted like Cracker Barrels Chicken tenders. I never order anything else but these when I go and love them and loved this recipe!

I was looking for tenders without breading. This fit the bill. Actually I used 2 chicken breasts and pounded them. As recommended I used 1 tbsp of honey and some Kraft low fat country Italian dressing. Very good!

Don't know how close to the original these are, but I liked the taste.

I found the recipe just "ok." I always get the chicken tenders when I go to cracker barrel but these had only a hint of that original flavor. Maybe something about the grill contributes to the flavor, so I'll try the recipe again later. Also, some people here say that CB uses Marzetti Italian dressing, so I'll have to try it.

Marzetti Italian Dressing is difficult to find, so I just used Wishbone. The main difference is that Mazetti dressing has a sweet taste, so I just added more honey (1 tbsp). Have always loved the chicken tenders at Cracker Barrel, so very happy to have this recipe. Will be making these on a regular basis!

They came out nicely. Next time I will try them on the grill, I think that will add to the taste. As I look at the pictures I am unsure if slicing up raw chicken breasts is the same as using "chicken tenders" because in the pictures, the chicken seems to have a glaze on it that I did not have when using raw chicken breasts. Either way, they tasted good but I would still like to know....
