Barbecued Chicken Tenders

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2006


  • Vegetable oil, for the grates
  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup store-bought barbecue sauce


  1. Heat grill to medium-high; lightly oil grates. Place chicken in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper. Pour 1/4 cup barbecue sauce over chicken, and toss to coat. Divide remaining barbecue sauce between two bowls (1/4 cup each); use one for basting and the other for serving.

  2. Grill chicken, turning and basting occasionally with reserved basting sauce, 8 to 10 minutes total. Remove chicken from grill; serve with reserved serving sauce.

    WOW! Thanks Martha! Who would have ever thought to put store bought bbq sauce on chicken. The seasoning with the salt really brings it to the next level. Keep up the great work!
