Chili Lime Chicken Tenders

This chicken was a big hit with my family, we grilled it outdoors and served it with Spanish rice and beans (which I of course didn't eat) along with fresh fruit. It could be a bit spicy for young children, I would suggest cutting the chili powder in half for them.

Chili Lime Chicken Tenders


20 chicken tenders

1/3 c. olive oil
2 T. red wine vinegar
juice of 4 limes
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 T. chili powder
2 tsp. cumin
2 green onions, sliced
1/2 tsp. salt
pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients and pour over chicken tenders. Let marinate at least 3 hours. Place tenders directly from marinade onto hot grill, cook as usual, discard marinade.


  1. Ohhh, I do love marinades, and that looks like a yummy one! Ina

  2. Actually my son loves spicy food, he'll put chili powder on his hand and lick it off (and I can't get him to eat veggies). I'll have to try this.

  3. Hi Mrs. Ed, maybe you could try putting chili powder on his veggies! If only life were that easy :)
