Stupid chicken tenders question.

This is a dumb question, I know, but I need an answer and I cannot seem to find it.

I have a recipe that I want to make which calls for 12 chicken tenders. I don't buy tenders. I either cut my own boneless breasts up from a whole chicken, or I buy chicken breasts. So for 12 chicken tenders, how many average-sized breasts would you use?

I'm guessing about 3-4. Am I right?

  1. Technically you get one tender per chicken breast half. It is a piece you trim off the edge. However, You can also just cut tender shaped pieces from the rest. I would say 3-4 is about right.
