Spicy baked chicken tenders

We made these for football snacks.  We doubled the recipe.  Thus was very good.

Spicy baked chicken tenders

Yield: 4 servings

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast tenders Beth used breasts and sliced them into 4 pieces each

The marinade:
5 garlic cloves, coarsely chopped
2 tablespoons Sriracha
One 1-inch piece ginger, peeled, finely grated
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
Juice of 1 lime
1 tablespoon sugar
Fresh cilantro (optional)

1. In a large bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade until smooth and allow to marinate chicken in this mixture for 1 hour minimum in the refrigerator. When ready to cook, bring chicken at room at room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 425°F.

2. Transfer chicken and a bit of sauce to a baking dish or roasting pan lined with parchment paper. Bake at 425°F for 25-30 minutes, basting with marinade from time to time, until cooked through. Meanwhile reduce the remaining marinade a little bit in a saucepan on the stove while chicken is cooking, then drizzle the reduced sauce over cooked chicken and toss before serving. Garnish with cilantro if desired, and serve immediately.
