My mom actually pointed this recipe out to me when I was down for a visit (she gets the paper). She had planned on giving it a try to tell me about it, but I beat her to the punch. I made these last week and they were great. I had 7 tenders in my pack of chicken. I had 3 and Chicken Legs had 4. Chicken Legs said next time we would split them 7-0 in his favor. We dipped them in some additional honey mustard, but I think BBQ or Ranch would be good too.
