I'd guess you could get by with a lot less butter.

add garlic powder and lemon juice o sauce fo more kick

I thought this was supposed to be Chinese food?

I used boneless, skinless breasts & thighs. Not much taste to this recipe--all I could really taste was butter! Expected the sauce of honey , butter & lemon juice to be good but it was very bland-- buttery. Afraid I won't be using this recipe again.

The recipe sounds good, but I'm wondering if you could use boneless skinless chicken tenders instead?

Sure! That is what I usually do in recipes calling for chicken as that is what my family prefers.
