Grilled BBQ Chicken:

  • ½ cup BBQ sauce of choice to taste
  • 1 lb chicken breast tenders
  • drizzle of avocado oil
  • salt & pepper to taste


  • Heat grill pan over medium-high heat and brush with avocado oil.
  • Place chicken tenders onto hot grill pan and season with salt and pepper. (Once you’ve placed your tenders, I recommend leaving them alone and not moving them until you flip. This will make for the best grill marks!)
  • Grill tenders for about 5 minutes on each side, brushing tops with oil before flipping.
  • Remove from grill pan, allow to cool slightly, and slice into strips.
  • Toss with BBQ sauce of choice.
  • Serve as desired immediately, or portion and store for later!
