You can use these flavour-packed chicken tenders as a standalone entrée with some vegetable sides, chop them and toss onto a grain bowl or a bed of baked spaghetti squash, or tuck them into a sandwich wrap. The zesty lemon flavour comes through clearly, and the toasted garlic gives the chicken a super-savoury backbone.
