Last day to enter the Pro-Chef Cutting board with prep bowls giveaway! Click here to do so.
Have you guys been watching the Olympics? We barely have because we decided to
be hippies spend more time away from screens and got rid of our cable for the Summer. But I've totally been loving the bits of it I have seen here and there. I like to pretend that the only thing holding me back from becoming a gymnast is my height (ahem, I'm 5' 10").
Not that I've never even been brave enough to do a flip on a trampoline. Nope . That has nothing to do with my unfulfilled gymnastic dreams.
But how awesome was the U.S. women's gymnastics team? And it was so fun watching Missy Franklin win her first gold medal then watching ole Phelps win his millionth medal. Yay! Go America!
Anyhow, the Olympics have nothing to do with the recipe I'm about to share with you. Except for the fact that we ate it right before watching the opening ceremony. Does that count?
In a bowl, whisk together dijon mustard, honey, chopped green onions, apple cider vinegar, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, parsley and a bit of olive oil.
Whisk it all together with a fork. Or I suppose you could use an actual whisk, if you must.
And dump in chicken tenders, tossing to coat evenly.
Sorry for the photo of raw chicken. That can be a little hard to handle in the morning.
Then you can either grill, bake, or pan-cook them. I went with the grilling option because I love my grill.
Spicy Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders
1 lb. chicken tenders
3 tbsp. dijon mustard
2 tbsp. honey
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. chopped green onions
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1 tsp. dried parsley
In a large bowl, whisk together all the ingredients except the chicken. After the sauce is combined, add in chicken, tossing to coat evenly. Chill the chicken for 30 minutes or several hours so the honey mustard flavors can seep in.
Preheat your grill and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side. Or put the tenders in a pan and bake at 375 for 15-18 minutes. Or pan-cook them in a skillet. However you do it, just be sure and cook the chicken until it's cooked through.
