Honey Garlic Chicken Tenders

Since the kids have been young, they have loved chicken tenders, but anything you can find in a packet, they know I’ll try to make it better. So recently I wanted to try making something fun and delicious for the kids. And these honey garlic chicken tenders were a huge hit with the whole family. I served it with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables. My Chili’s Copycat Honey Chipotle Chicken Crispers are one of my most popular recipes on the website and is visited thousands of times a month on Pinterest.
