  • Allow the chicken to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes, up to 8 hours.

Grilling Chicken Tenders On The Stove

  • The best method for grilling chicken strips on the stove is to use a griddle. A griddle pan has ridges similar to the grates in a grill. 
  • Allow the pan to get very hot before adding your chicken, and you will get the grill marks just like you would from an outdoor grill. 



  • If cutting your own chicken tenders, cut them as evenly as possible so they cook evenly. 
  • Avoid leaving the chicken in the marinade for more than 8 hours as the chicken will begin to break down and have an unpleasant texture. 
  • Oil the grates of the grill before heating to prevent sticking. 
  • Chicken will usually release from the grill when it's ready to be flipped. If it’s sticking, give it a few more seconds and then try again.
  • Flip the chicken halfway through the cooking time.
  • Always check for doneness with a meat thermometer to determine how long to grill chicken tenders. The internal temperature should be 165F / 74C when inserted into the thickest part of chicken breasts.
  • Storage - keep in an airtight container inside the fridge for 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
  • There is just 1 WW Blue Plan SmartPoint in one serving of this.
