Lemon Thyme Chicken Tenders Recipe


Chicken tenders get a flavor boost from fresh lemon and thyme. They are great as a main course or served on top of a big salad.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme, leaves stripped and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 pound chicken breast tenders
  • olive oil-flavored cooking spray


  1. Combine the olive oil, garlic, chopped thyme, lemon zest, and lemon juice in a large mixing bowl. Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Toss chicken with the olive oil mixture; allow to marinate for 5 minutes.
  2. Spray a non-stick skillet with cooking spray, and place over medium-high heat. Cook chicken tenders in the hot pan until lightly browned and cooked through, about 4 minutes per side.
