The Quick Facts on Chicken Tenders 

  • Air-chilled, hand-cut poultry
  • Free range, all natural and hormone free
  • 1.5 lb package; approx. 12-16 tenders

Chicken tenders might be our poultry team’s best-kept secret. Sure, cornish hens are all the rage, and fresh chicken breast is a timeless family staple. But don’t overlook our delicious chicken tenderloin! Butcher Shoppe’s raw chicken tenders come from fresh, air-chilled local birds. Each package is hand cut to order and sent right to your door—never frozen. And the flavor? It’s tremendous. 

Goes Great With...

When it comes to pairing, chicken tenders can adapt to a variety of flavors and textures. For a classic and crowd-pleasing combination, few things beat dipping chicken tenders into a rich and tangy plum sauce, accompanied by a heaping basket of golden, crispy fries. The sweet and savory dance of flavors creates an experience that satisfies cravings and ignites taste buds. 

Chicken tenders are also a versatile companion to an array of other meats. Picture a mouthwatering platter with juicy slices of tenderloin steak, fresh beef burgers, and perfectly grilled chicken tenders. This carnivorous feast offers a symphony of flavors and textures, allowing diners to mix and match bites for an unforgettable culinary journey. 

Our Preferred Preparation for Raw Chicken Tenders

Chicken fingers of course! You can bread them, bake them, or pan sear them in garlic butter. You can serve them as an entree, as a tasty appetizer for a group. And dipping sauces? That’s a science in and of itself.

How it Ships...

Our raw chicken tenders are prepared to order in 1.5 lb packages and sent to your door on our own fleet of refrigerated trucks within 12-24 hours of your order.

The Butcher Shoppe sources the chickens for our chicken tenders from local Ontario farms. 

We recommend you prepare or freeze your chicken tenders within five days of receiving them. Avoid washing the raw chicken tenders as this will spread juices to other surfaces. Instead, wash your hands first and then handle the tenders using a separate cutting board. When it comes time to cook, the key is to avoid drying the chicken out.

A four-ounce serving of chicken breast contains just about 100 calories and almost two dozen grams of protein, making it a lean, healthy, and incredibly easy protein to make.

“Made from 100% locally raised Ontario chicken.”

The Butcher Shoppe sources our chickens from local free-run Ontario farms and hand cuts our chicken tenders to order.

The freshness of our chicken tenders is evident in the quality and taste.

From the Head Butcher’s Counter

“Where you get your chicken matters. From the farm the chickens are raised on, to how the meat is chilled, we really scrutinize every last detail, which you’ll find in the juicy tender flavor of Butcher Shoppe chicken.”

Grilled Chicken Strips

One way to enjoy your chicken tenders is to keep it simple on the grill. Put the chicken tenders in a ziploc bag with your favorite marinade—say, oil, vinegar, honey, mustard, and lemon juice?—and let the meat sit for a couple of hours. When the grill is hot, cook the tenders for a couple minutes on each side while being careful not to dry out the meat.

Broiled Chicken Tenders

To cook your chicken tenders in a broiler, get the broiler going on high. Next, prepare your chicken strips by rubbing them down with olive oil, salt, pepper, and a cajun spice mix of your choosing. Place your chicken tenders on the rack and broil them for a few minutes on each side.

Pan-Cooked Chicken Strips

If you want to pan fry your chicken tenders, first pat the chicken dry and then coat the strips in a mix of flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Heat a generous drizzle of oil in a pan on medium heat before searing the chicken for a few minutes on each side.
