  1. Heat oven to temperature recommended for your tenders. Line a sheet pan with foil or brush with some cooking oil and spread tenders out on the prepared sheet pan. Bake according to package instructions.

  2. While tenders bake, place green beans in a saute pan with enough salted water to barely cover them. Place over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer the beans until crisp-tender, ~6-7 minutes. Drain well and toss with butter (if using) and lemon juice.

  3. Warm rolls according to package directions.

  4. If you'd like, warm the hot honey briefly in the microwave - ~15-20 seconds.

  5. Divide tenders among serving plates and drizzle with hot honey. Serve with green beans and rolls on the side, plus extra hot honey for dipping. Enjoy!
