4 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

34 cloves garlic, minced

3 dashes of cayenne powder

1 tsp bottled Italian seasoning (Simply Organic or McCormick brand)

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tbsp chopped parsley

lemon wedges

salt, to taste

1/2 tbsp lemon juice


Add smoked paprika and cayenne pepper to the chicken tenders for flavor. Put them aside for now.

Put 3 tablespoons of butter into a hot cast-iron (or other heavy) pan. When the butter is hot and bubbling, throw in the chicken strips. Leave undisturbed for one to two minutes, flip, and continue cooking.

The chicken tenders should be moved to one side of the pan. Put the remaining tablespoon of butter and the minced garlic into the skillet. Mix the Italian seasoning with the chicken and garlic, then sprinkle it on top of the chicken tenders.

Cook the chicken tenders in the pan with the salt and lemon juice until they are browned on both sides. Put in some chopped parsley and mix it all. Take it off the fire and serve it with lemon wedges right away. Before serving, give it a good squeeze of fresh lemon juice.
