There is nothing I love more than a big basket of thick juicy chicken tenders, smothered in that special sauce.

I was craving chicken tenders the other day, so up on the Dwyer & Michales Facebook went the question, "Who has the best chicken tenders around the Quad Cities?"

Of course, I did not want basic fast food answers such as Canes, Culvers, and Hardees. I was looking for sit-down restaurants, bar-and-grill's, and maybe even a food truck.

The comments did not disappoint, 300 people chimed in with their opinions, and surprisingly, many of the places recommended were just outside of the Quad Cities. Restaurants in Cedar Falls, Dubuque, Geneseo, and other outlying cities kept appearing the most in the comments.

Many of the places suggested I have never been to before, and now I have a reason to go visit.

Here are the 10 of the best places to order chicken tenders outside of the Quad Cities:
