Lemon Thyme Chicken Tenders

This was a simple recipe that was quick and easy to make. The brightness from the lemon and savory from the thyme, make them a quick hit at the table. This just shows that it doesn’t take much to doctor up some chicken to make your meal become next level.

This is similar to our lemon and thyme chicken recipe, except this recipe is made for the stovetop. The other recipe is better suited for the oven.
