FIRST RECIPE – Mouth-Watering Seasoned Chicken Tenderloins

Here are the things you need to prepare to make the first recipe.

  • Chicken tenderloins
  • Kosher salt

Step one

  • Pat dry the surface of your chicken breast.

  • You can mix and match everything you like if you don’t like the odor of your chicken.
  • Cut a lemon and squeeze the juice onto the tender.
  • You can also add the herbs you like to kick them.
  • I’d say sage or thyme leaves can do wonders.

Step three

  • Place aluminum foil on the tray.
  • Then spray the oil and coat the baking sheet evenly.
  • The seasoned chicken tenderloins should be ready by then.
  • Place them onto the baking pan.
  • Leave enough space between each other to distribute the heat evenly when baking it in your oven.

Step four

  • Bake the chicken tenderloins in the oven for around 10 to 20 minutes, depending on the chicken’s thickness.
  • Make sure that the inner temperature is 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Use the conventional thermometer to see the temperature accurately.
