Grilled Chicken Tenderloins (Similar to Cracker Barrel)

Posted by Lori:
If I could, I would eat Cracker Barrel grilled chicken tenderloins every day.  They are sooooo good!  But, that would cost a fortune - so I can't.  However, I can buy a three pound bag of frozen tenderloins for the same price as one tenderloin dinner at C.B., and use this marinade recipe below, and I've got a close substitute for the C.B. dinner.  Yum! Yum!

I tripled the recipe for our family of six.

1 lb chicken tenders
1/2 cup Italian dressing (some suggestions were using Marzetti or Italian dressing mix variety OR a creamy variety.  I only had regular Italians, so added 1 tablespoon of mayo)
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
1 1/2 teaspoons honey

Mix dressing, lime juice and honey. Pour over chicken tenders. Marinate for 1 hour.
Cook tenders in a non stick pan or grill until golden in color, but not dry.
