You don’t need to marinate Chicken Tenderloins for many hours. Today I marinated for only 15 minutes. And as you know, Chicken Tenderloins can be cooked very quickly. This is a quick and easy, and healthy Chicken dish. Use your favourite Herbs and serve with a refreshing salad.


4 Servings


500 to 600g Chicken Tenderloins *tendon removed if you choose to do so
Salt & Pepper
Finely chopped Parsley

1-2 cloves Garlic *grated
Zest of 1 Lemon *finely grated
2 tablespoons Lemon Juice
2 tablespoons Sake (Rice Wine)
2 tablespoons Olive Oil *OR Oil of your choice
1 tablespoon finely chopped Herbs of your choice *dry OR fresh
*Note: Today I used Oregano and Italian Herb Mix
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon Sugar

  1. Combine all the Marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl. Add Chicken Tenderloins, mix to combine well, then marinate for 15 to 30 minutes.
  2. Drain the Chicken Tenderloins and discard the marinade.
  3. Heat a grill pan OR frying pan over medium high heat, lightly oil it if necessary, and cook Chicken Tenderloins until both sides are nicely browned and cooked through. It won’t take very long.
  4. Sprinkle with some Salt, Pepper and finely chopped Parsley (OR other Herbs of your choice such as Coriander) and serve.
