Zesty Marinated Chicken Tenders

I'm always looking for new and easy ways to fix delicious chicken. My favorites places to eat chicken are Ruby Tuesdays and Cracker Barrel. This recipe turns out even better than Cracker Barrel's grilled tenderloins.

Zesty Marinated Chicken Tenders

4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into fat strips
1 cup Zesty Italian dressing
2 tsp lime juice
3 tsp honey

Combine the dressing, lime juice and honey in a jar or shaker and shake it well.
Place chicken in a zip bag, pour the marinade over and seal.
Refrigerate for 4 hours. (At this stage you can also freeze for a later date.)
Cook in a large pan over low heat until liquid evaporates and marinade caramelizes--about 40 minutes.

Great with mashed/baked potatoes or rice and a colorful vegetable.
