What can you do with Garlic Scapes? These Garlic Scape, Lemon Grilled Chicken Tenders are about 5 minutes prep and 10 to cook on grill! What could be easier than that?
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw my recent post about garlic scapes! I picked a 5 gallon bucket full of scapes from a friend down the road. One to help him out and two, because I really wanted them! Mine aren’t ready yet, so I’ll have two batches this year! Fine by me! Garlic scapes are so good! I am trying to come up with new and different ways to use them!
How to Make Garlic Scape, Lemon Grilled Chicken tenders
It couldn’t be easier to make this quick, weeknight dinner. Just grind up the garlic scapes in the food processor and mix the scapes with lemon juice and olive oil. Just salt and pepper both sides of the chicken then baste with the garlic scape mixture on both sides as it grills. If you have the time you can marinate the chicken in the garlic scape mixture for an hour, for added flavor. They are good even without the marinade, though.
