BBQ Chicken Tenders

Oh how I love this time of year! Hot days and warm nights. The weather is warming up beautifully and once again the BBQ is being used often as our meal times shift from the dining table out to the patio. These tenders are light, summery, easy to prepare and delicious to eat. Perfect springtime food 🙂



  • 500g chicken breast tenders
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. mixed herbs OR
  • 1/4 tsp. each of basil, marjoram, oregano, rosemary, and thyme

  5. Spread chicken in a single layer and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
