Hero Chicken

Our picnic chicken tenders were marinated in a "Jerk" sauce prior to baking. Since my thoughtful husband suggested we picnic on Saturday instead of a rainy forecast Sunday-we did.  Sunday is Fathers Day, and he is everything opposite of a jerk-so I called this my "Hero" Chicken.  My 2 Bean Salad is made with South Carolina red peas.  The dressing is so good-we even dipped our chicken in it!  We had mango slices on the side and shared a fresh baked cream horn from our farmer's market baker friend Patty.
