Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 18 minutes

Total Time: 23 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken tenders
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 small clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Marsala wine
  • 8 to 12 grape tomatoes, halved


Wash chicken tenders and pat dry with paper towels.

Heat the butter and olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Meanwhile, in a food storage bag or bowl combine the flour, salt, and pepper. Toss the chicken tenders with the flour mixture until well coated.

Brown the chicken tenders for about 3 minutes on each side in the hot butter and oil mixture, or until lightly browned. Add the green onions and garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the basil, chicken broth, and Marsala. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the halved grape tomatoes, cover, and simmer for about 6 to 8 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.

Transfer the chicken tenders to a serving platter and top with the vegetables and sauce.

Serve these easy chicken tenders with hot boiled rice, angel hair pasta, or potatoes.
