  • 2 pound (or less) chicken tenders
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • 1 lemon- thinly sliced rounds
  • 1 large clove garlic chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh herbs – Summer Savory, Rosemary, Oregano, and Parsley


  • Season chicken tenders with salt and black pepper.
  • Combine remaining ingredients together to make marinade.
  • Place chicken into a zip lock bag and add the marinade:
  • Make sure that the marinade covers all parts of the chicken and place the sealed zip lock bag into the refrigerator for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Using a medium hot skillet, add a little olive oil to brown the chicken on both sides. If the oil has separated from the marinade, 1- 2 tablespoon of this could be used.
  • Remove the tenders from the pan and set aside. Add the marinade to the pan to cook the juices, deglaze the pan, and reduce the sauce. When this step is done, add the tenders back into the pan and serve.
  • Bulgur wheat or ancient grains would make a delicious combination.
