In a large mixing bowl, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, minced garlic, smoked paprika, dried oregano, onion powder, salt, and black pepper. Whisk the ingredients together until they form a well-blended marinade.
Place the chicken tenders in the marinade, ensuring they are evenly coated. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and let the chicken marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. For even more flavorful tenders, you can marinate them overnight.
Remove the chicken tenders from the marinade, allowing any excess to drip off. Place the tenders on the preheated grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side. The exact cooking time will depend on the thickness of the tenders. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F for safe consumption.
Once the chicken tenders are cooked through, remove them from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, ensuring each tender remains juicy and tender. If desired, garnish the grilled chicken tenders with fresh herbs like parsley or cilantro for an extra burst of freshness.
Plate the grilled chicken tenders and serve them with your favorite side dishes, such as grilled vegetables, salads, or fluffy rice. These flavorful and succulent chicken tenders are sure to be a crowd-pleaser at any gathering.
