  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 2 tbsp Sriracha
  • 2 tbsp Swerve, confectioner’s
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • 1 lb boneless chicken tenders
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cilantro, for garnish


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the avocado oil, Sriracha, Swerve, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, and ginger. Add the tenders and toss well to coat. Marinate for 2 hours and up to 4 hours.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425F and line a baking sheet with tinfoil. Remove the chicken from the marinade (reserve the marinade) and arrange in a single layer. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, until chicken is cooked through.
  3. Meanwhile, transfer the marinade to a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by about half. Drizzle over the tenders before serving.
