This chicken is excellent! I rarely use tenders, but I did this time. It was so good! We roasted some veggies and we drizzled sauce over them. Great dinner!

These were so good, I was given a bottle of good balsamic for a present and it was perfect for this

I love most things with balsamic vinegar, but this turned out over the top amazing. I used a fig balsamic, and tripled the sauce! Then used half for the chicken and saved the rest to use on...whatever! This sauce is to die for! I could actually drink it by itself. Easy recipe, and this one is going into my best of 2020 file. Delicious!

I made this to place on top of a large green salad and was thrilled with the results! The chicken tenders have such a nice flavor and I used a tad bit more of the balsamic on the salad. I had pomegranate balsamic on hand and loved it here. Thank you for sharing a recipe I'll use again!
