This came up in the episode. In the United States chicken tenders are traditionally made from chicken breast tenderloins, the little strip of meat on the back of a chicken breast, it's usually removed and sold separately. They're battered or breaded and fried. A lot of restaurants will slice of pieces of chicken breast and do the same thing, but I think that yields less consistent results. Occasionally you'll see long flat chicken nuggets labeled as chicken tenders, usually a cheaper restaurants or concession stands, but I'd still consider them nuggets.
