Pinterest Recipe Review - Cracker Barrel Grilled Chicken Tenderloins

  • Save time (it's more fun to cook when something tastes good)!
  • Save money (it's more fun when you don't waste ingredients)!  
Do you pin recipes you rarely make? I do. For you and me, for us, I'm reviewing a different Pinterest recipe every Thursday. What's in it for you? Saving time and money, of course!

Grilled Chicken Tenderloins (without the grill)

Cracker Barrel Copycat

Recipe found at Christy Jordan's Southern Plate.  

The only modification I made to the recipe was halved it. I'm usually cooking for two.
I tried this recipe because I LOVE Cracker Barrel's Grilled Chicken Tenderloins. Christy says "I think they are much better than Cracker Barrel's, actually!" So, I'm excited to get cooking! Like letting the air out of a pool float, deflated! Christy's tastes and mine aren't exactly the same! The chicken tasted good and tender. It looked like Cracker Barrel's but didn't taste anywhere close to their flavor. Good news, easy, easy recipe!

Tammy's Taste Tester says... 

1 =save your time, 2 =try if you got the goods, 3 =just so-so, 4 =close to Mom's and 5 =grab a recipe card

Making it Meter =1 

1=kid proof, 2=easy, 3=worth the time, 4=difficult, 5=culinary degree required

Great recipe to make with older kids learning to cook with the stove! Four ingredients, done!

When I can't make it to Cracker Barrel for their tenderloins, I marinate chicken tenders in Italian dressing overnight and use a grill pan similar to Rachel Ray's Oval Grill Pan pictured below. Still -- not as good as the original but an easy substitute.

I also LOVE Cracker Barrel's Chicken and Rice! Which Cracker Barrel recipes are your favorite?
