These chicken tenders were so fresh and light with the panko bread crumbs...and the honey mustard was perfect! I cooked these for my family for the Superbowl game and they were WONDERFUL! One thing I need to remember for the next time I prepare this dish is to make the sauce first. Before I was able to make the sauce, much of the chicken was eaten up!
