Remove that aweful, tough TENDON from the Chicken Tender

  • Published on May 8, 2015
  • It is such a treat to have chicken tenders. We buy them because they are well more tender. That is what we expect or at least until after that first bite there it is. Usually you do not even know what that thing is. That impossible to chew piece of chicken there in my chicken tender that is well. gross.
    This weird little thing that is in almost every bite of a chicken tender is a tendon that runs practically the entire length of the tender.
    It may have to be there while the chicken is alive but I certainly should not have to eat it. Well, now we can remove it very easily. Watch this video and if you like the idea please share.

    Thanks for watching, Margie

    Thank you Margie! I had almost given up on eating chicken just because that tendon is so gross. Every time I tried to get it out, I end up with a butchered chicken tender.

      Better to butcher than to eat that thing, I am happy that I could help. Now you can enjoy chicken again. I am sure that the chickens are not happy you saw this video...but I am. Margie

    Hello ma’am.
    Thanks for this video I made one pot chicken and asparagus last week and I spent 5 minutes each tenderloin digging out the tendon...
    Thank you 🙏

      I use a straight edge steak knife. You simply slide it along the tendon of the chicken or turkey tendon. I never thought to use pliers, though.

    Good video, and good idea.
    By the way, the tool is called a vice grip.
