So I kind of wore a down jacket today. I know. It was 67 degrees F. That’s cold.

Except it’s going to be 89 tomorrow! Midwest weather is crazy, guys. At least in Los Angeles, it was consistently 75-80 degrees for 75% of the year.

Anyway, I bring up the weather because I am going to grill the heck out of these chicken tenders before it gets to Chiberia time!

With just a simple honey mustard marinade, this should only take 10 minutes to prep. And you’ll be so surprised as to how epic these chicken tenders are. They get marinated for 2-8 hours, then thrown on the grill, then finished off with the rest of the glaze, yielding that perfectly sticky glaze.

It’s so wonderfully sticky-sweet and savory. Aka, the best flavor combo ever.

Serve with a salad, crusty bread, and all the wine before winter hits. It’s going to come fast!
