Broiled Chicken Tenderloins with Indian Spices

This is an incredibly easy and quick recipe that is a perfect method for cooking chicken tenderloins.  You can vary the spice mixture however you want so that it fits with whatever else you're cooking.  This is a fairly large recipe, which means you can use the leftovers for lunches, because they'd be perfect for topping a salad or putting in a wrap.

What You Need:

Spice Mix: 

2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2-3 teaspoons cumin
2-3 teaspoons garlic powder
2-3 teaspoons garam masala or curry powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

2 1/2 pounds chicken tenderloins
Olive oil spray

Mix together spices.  Place tenderloin pieces in a large bowl.  Rub all over chicken tenderloin pieces. Cover.  Let sit in refrigerator for 2 hours if possible.  Take out of the fridge 20 minutes before cooking.  Preheat oven to broil on high.  Lightly spray a large sheet pan or two smaller baking pans with olive oil.  Arrange chicken on pan(s) so that the pieces are barely touching each other.  Broil for 5-6 minutes and then flip to opposite side.  Broil for another 5 minutes, or until cooked through.

Serve with tzatziki sauce if desired.
