I freakin’ love cracker barrel.

I don’t know what it is, I love a lot of the menu and come on, anytime there is shopping and food involved I’m totally in!

 

I get these grilled chicken tenderloins almost every time we go. They are just so moist and flavorful.

 

When I found this recipe I knew I had to make them and they came out great! They are almost dead on to the original, so of course, this is now on our weekly rotation!

Oh, and did I mention they are super easy?!

Step by Step Directions

Mix the dressing, lime juice, and honey together. Place the marinade in a ziplock bag with the chicken and make sure all the chicken is coated. Place this in the fridge to marinade for an hour, if you marinade longer the chicken might start cooking due to the lime juice so keep an eye on it!
In a skillet over medium heat, spray with cooking spray and place chicken in the pan.

It can’t get much easier than that! I had mine on a salad and it was soooo good.

    Hubby eats these there all the time! Our very favorite though, is the sliced sugar cured ham — it’s literally the only food my daughter can eat there (she’s allergic to all foods except pork and strawberries) – they can just toss it on a plate, nuke it, and she can eat with no reactions. CB is our go-to restaurant – I think we’ve been to just about every one along I-95 between NJ and Florida!

    The chicken looks exactcly what it looks like at CB. I like your instructions as other copy cats online has the entire marinade added to the skillet and must be reduced for 45 min. Thats just too long and I don’t belive Cracker Barrel does it that way as that will dry the chicken out. Good job, I’m making this tonight!
