Ingredients

  • 3 lbs ButcherBox Chicken Tenders

Marinade

  • ½ c olive oil extra virgin
  • 1 tsp mint minced
  • 1 Tbsp oregano minced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 2 lemons juice
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • ½ tsp kosher salt

Tzatziki

  • 2 c Plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • ½ English cucumber seeded and small dice
  • 1 Tbsp mint finely chopped
  • 1 Tbsp dill finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ tsp kosher salt

Instructions

  • Place chicken tenders and marinade ingredients in a resealable, leak-proof bag.  Marinate for 2 hours - overnight in refrigerator.
  • Remove chicken from marinade, and pat dry chicken tenders with paper towels. Discard all excess marinade.
  • Preheat grill pan. Once pan is hot, add chicken tenders. Reduce heat to medium and sear chicken on both sides for 5 minutes per side, or until meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 165°F.

Tzatziki

  • For the tzatziki, mix all ingredients together.  This can be made two days in advance to really let the flavors melt into each other.
  • Serve chicken tenders on a salad or pita with the minty, dill tzatziki!
