These fun chicken tenders pack a powerful flavor. 

They are refreshing and perfect for this time of year; bringing a hint of summer during spring! 

Honey Mustard Chicken Tenders
– Adapted from Good Life Eats


  • 6-8 chicken tenders
  • 1 tsp. minced onion
  • 4 T spicy brown mustard
  • 5 T honey
  • salt and pepper


In a large skillet, cook chicken tenders (use olive oil if you typically do when cooking in your sauté pan) over medium heat for 1-2 minutes.

Season with minced onion, salt and pepper and continue cooking for another 3-4 minutes.  Then, flip the tenders over. 

Meanwhile, mix together 4 T spicy brown mustard and 5 T honey. 

Mix well. 

When the tenders have cooked 5 minutes on the second side, reduce the heat to medium-low. 

Pour in the honey mustard sauce and simmer the chicken tenders for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally. 

Check that the tenders have reached 180 degrees, then serve with excess honey mustard sauce. 

Serve warm, perhaps alongside creamy cauliflower & zucchini rice
