There is only so many ways to prepare chicken tenders. I prefer a variety of ways for presentation and to taste different flavors. So, I was grocery shopping and saw this new seasoning by Webber called Jalapeno Herbs and decided to try it. For one thing, is kind of hot, (smile), but don’t worry, is nicely hot and the herbs balance the flavors. So, I bought it and then, I used it today. Oh, and it doesn’t hurt that it pairs well with a perfect wine.
