Chicken Tenders

Chicken tenders aren’t just for the kids’ menu! These delicious strips of white meat come from either side of the breast bone of the bird.

They cook quickly and easily and are a low-fat source of protein – it’s no surprise that they’re a go-to pick for family dinners.

Our chicken tenders come ready to be grilled, roasted, or fried, and, are great with all kinds of dipping sauces.
