I love grilled meat. Do you? I'm not sure that you could grill something that I wouldn't enjoy! These tenders are super easy and just take a few minutes. Mix up some spices and throw those babies on the grill! 


  • 1 lb chicken tenders
  • 2 tbsp cajun seasoning (slap ya mama) 
  • 1/2 tbsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp blackened seasoning (Zatarains) 
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • Olive Oil


  • Lay chicken in a baking pan or on a cookie sheet
  • Drizzle olive oil on top and toss them around
  • Mix the seasonings together in a small bowl
  • Sprinkle on top of chicken
  • Grill: 
  • For this, we used our grill mats.  The chicken stays together better (No sticking to the grill grates) and it also cooks evenly. A lot of times we find when we cook chicken tenders on the grill alone, the tips will burn. 
  • Grill until proper internal temp is reached
