Dawn's notes for this recipe:
Poaching chicken tenders can be not only a healthy way of eating but very versatile too. I do this recipe for myself and make different meals out of them. I hope you give it a try! Watch for other great recipes of mine that uses poached chicken as an ingredient (breakfast, lunch, or dinner)that you'll be sure to love!

Place 10” – 12” non-stick skillet over high heat.
Add to skillet, chicken stock, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, and bay leaf. Cover and bring to boil.
Season chicken with salt and pepper to liking then add chicken tenders to skillet but do not over crowd (you can always do a second batch if needed) and cover and then reduce heat to low.
Set timer for 15 minutes, turn tenders over, then set for another 15 minutes.
Remove all tenders to cool and discard liquid and herbs.

I do something similar with frozen chicken breasts. It is posted under main dishes as "Skillet Browned Chicken from Frozen Pieces".

I'm making Dawn's poached chicken tonight! Out of this poached chicken i'm going to make sweet and sour chicken with vegtables!!! Can't wait. I'll let everyone know how it turns out and maybe a picture as well. This is way healthier than frying the chicken like i was going too. Thanks Dawn :)
