It doesn’t get easier than these Baked Chicken Honey Tenders. They are simple, quick, delicious, and always a family favorite.
My slow cooker is my best friend and I use her at least 3 to 4 times a week (yes, my slow cooker is a girl). 🙂 If I can’t throw it together in a matter of minutes, it just is not going to happen.
However, every once in a while, I completely space to put my food in the crock pot in the morning and so when dinner time rolls around, I am scrambling to find something to feed my family.
I was in that exact dilemma a couple of weeks ago and came across a recipe for Baked Chicken. I love how tender and perfect my chicken cooks in the crock pot and feared that this chicken might be dry.
The end result was amazing! This is definitely being added to our regular dinner rotation.
Baked honey chicken tenders is an easy dinner recipe that you can get started in the morning, let it marinate and have the flavors develop and then pop them in the oven in the evening for dinner.
This is a great family dinner recipe. Our kids like the taste of the chicken and of course always love anything that is sticky. Haha.
Since we bake these chicken tenders in the oven, you can free up your time to make other sides to go with it and not worry about having to constantly monitor and flip the chicken.

How To Make These Baked Honey Chicken Tenders:
Grab your 9×13 inch pan and spray it with nonstick cooking spray.
Now, layer the chicken tenders in a single layer in the bottom of the pan.
Then in a medium sized mixing bowl, mix together the honey, soy sauce, ground ginger, minced garlic, and dried onions to make the marinade.
Once it is all mixed together, pour it over top of the chicken tenders and cover the pan with plastic wrap.
After the pan is covered place it in the fridge to let it marinate for at least an hour be sure to turn the chicken half of the way through to make sure everything sits in the marinade.
NOTE: I like to try and let mine marinate for 3 hours to let the flavors develop.
When you are getting ready to bake the chicken, preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
To bake the chicken, remove the pan from the fridge and take off the plastic wrap and bake the chicken for 20 minutes.
After the 20 minutes is up, remove the pan from the oven, flip the chicken over and top it with the sliced green onions.
When you are done with that, return the chicken to the oven for another 10 minutes to bake or until the chicken is no longer pink and the juices from chicken run clear.
Now just serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!
