Southwest Chicken Tenders: Get Your Grill On! {Freezer Meal}


This southwest marinade is sure to please all the eaters in your house. It is full of flavor, but not spicy.

Here’s a great recipe to try this grilling season.

These Southwest Chicken Tenders take main stage in the Southwest Chicken and Bacon Wraps. We’ve learned, though, that they are delicious on their own, in the Cobb Salad, or on a chicken sandwich.

As a mom of three younger kids, what I love about this marinade is that it’s so very flavorful but not too spicy. They are a home run with all ages.
