Balsamic Glazed Chicken Tenders (TNT)

Post by pstarkoski on Mon Jul 11, 2011 6:53 am

I happened to have some chicken tenders in the freezer when I saw this recipe....and all of the other ingredients on hand too, so I made this for dinner last week. They were so good! The chicken was very tender and the glaze was very tasty. I served it with some oven roasted asparagus.
Enjoy!
