1. Rinse chicken tenders and pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.

2. Get a big bowl, mixing all the ingredients of the marinade together using a whisk. Make sure the marinade is well combined together.

3. Add chicken tenders to the Marinade, make sure to stir and coat evenly. Marinate for 30 minutes. Then thread on small skewers, alternating with a jalapeño and a bell pepper piece.

4. Fire up the grill, brush a little bit of oil on the surface. Add a little bit of the garlic, cilantro, and jalapeno from the Marinade on top of the chicken and grill them until they turn golden brown and charred on both sides. Serve immediately.

Note: You can make these Cilantro Lime Chicken Tenders with a cast-iron grill pan or a regular skillet, or even broil in the oven. If you don’t have chicken tenders available, just use skinless, boneless chicken breasts cut into strips.
