1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter divided

¼ tsp ground black pepper
4 cloves garlic minced or crushed
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped – for garnish
How to make Chicken Tenders
Step 1: In a pan/skillet, melt the butter with a tbsp butter over medium heat.
Step 2: To the melted butter and hot oil, add the chicken tenders. Sprinkle with paprika, salt, and pepper. Cook the chicken tenders on each side for about 3 minutes. Remember to season each side as the chicken cooks.
Step 3: Push the chicken tenders on one side and add the garlic to one side, melt the rest of the butter, and add the garlic. Continue to cook for 30 seconds more or until the garlic is aromatic.
Step 4: Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and cook for an additional 1 minute.
Step 5: To the pan, add 2 tbsp of water. Deglaze the pan, scraping off the bits from the bottom of the pan.
Step 6: Serve warm garnished with some chopped parsley or basil leaves. Enjoy!
Keep an eye on the garlic and be careful not to burn them. Burnt garlic tastes terrible, and it takes just about 30 to 60 seconds to cook.
Avoid overcooking the chicken as they will end up stringy, dry, and tough. The ideal internal temperature of the chicken is 165 degrees F or 74 degrees C.
Glaze the pan with a splash of water. This guarantees a flavorful sauce because of the bits from the bottom of the pan.
