Garlic Butter Chicken Tenders


  • 1 pound of chicken tenders
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Prepare the Chicken Tenders: Pat the chicken tenders dry with a paper towel and season them with a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  2. Melt the Butter: In a skillet or pan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  3. Sauté the Garlic: Add the minced garlic to the melted butter and sauté for a minute or until it becomes fragrant and slightly golden.
  4. Add Seasonings: Stir in the paprika and dried thyme, and mix well with the garlic and butter. This will infuse the butter with flavor.
  5. Cook the Chicken Tenders: Place the seasoned chicken tenders in the skillet with the garlic butter. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are fully cooked and have a golden-brown exterior. The internal temperature should reach 165°F (74°C).
  6. Garnish and Serve: Once the chicken tenders are cooked through, remove them from the pan. Sprinkle them with chopped fresh parsley for a burst of color and freshness.
