FRIED CHICKEN TENDERS



Fried Chicken Tenders image

Nice and crispy and a tad spicy, the perfect appetizer. The trick to perfect fried chicken is to control the temperature of your oil. Too hot and the food burns before it's fully cooked, too cool and it won't get crispy and it will get very greasy. Use a deep-fry thermometer and a heavy pot so that when you add the food the temperature won't drop too drastically. Brining the chicken is the best way to make it juicy and flavorful, but I wouldn't recommend doing it overnight as that's too long. Two hours should do it.

Time 2h10m

Yield 4 serving(s)

Number Of Ingredients 13

1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1 quart water
1/4 cup kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar
2 cups flour
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons paprika
2 tablespoons seasoning salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 eggs
1/4 cup milk

Steps:

  • Combine the water, kosher salt, and sugar in a container to form a brine. Add the chicken tenders and let this marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
  • Combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, seasoned salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a container and mix very well to combine.
  • Mix the eggs and milk in another container.
  • Preheat your oil to 350 degrees.
  • Dredge the chicken tenders in the flour mixture and pat off excess.
  • Dip the tenders in the egg mixture and drain excess.
  • Dredge the chicken tenders in the flour a second time and set them on a plate. Put them in the fridge to dry out for about 20 minutes. This will help the coating stick to the chicken better.
  • Once the oil is hot, fry the tenders in small batches for about 5 minutes and then drain on paper towels.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauces!

FRIED CHICKEN TENDERS



Fried Chicken Tenders image

This recipe came from my "Where's Mom Now That I Need Her?" cookbook. The recipe calls for one whole fryer chicken, but I usually just use four skinless chicken breasts. This way, I have breading left over for the next time I want to make this dish.

Provided by junkmail

Categories     Chicken Breast

Time 1h15m

Yield 8 chicken breasts

Number Of Ingredients 6

1 cup biscuit mix
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
1 dash pepper
8 boneless skinless chicken breasts or 1 broiler-fryer chicken
1/2 cup butter or 1/2 cup margarine

Steps:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • While oven is preheating, place 1/2 cup butter or margarine in 9x13 baking dish. Place in oven just until melted.
  • Combine biscuit mix, salt, paprika, and pepper in small mixing bowl.
  • Place the amount of breading you'll be using in a paper bag. (Whole recipe will coat one whole fryer chicken or about 8 chicken breasts). Place the remainder in a plastic baggie for use at a later time.
  • Cut chicken into pieces about 1 inch thick.
  • Place chicken pieces in paper bag of breading one at a time and shake to coat.
  • Place coated pieces in baking dish with melted butter or margarine.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and bake for an additional 10 minutes. If using a convection oven (which is what I use) you'll only need to bake the chicken at 400 for about 40 minutes.
  • Serve with your favorite dipping sauce (I prefer honey mustard).
