There are many ways to make up crunchy chicken tenders. You can coat them with plain self rising flour, or dust them and roll in panko bread crumbs. corn flake cereal, and even crushed chips works great. Today though I am going to share yet another way to make up crunchy chicken tenders.
This recipe starts with skinless chicken breasts, slice it into tenders and season. Lightly dust in flour and dip in beaten egg and rolled in crushed up saltine crackers. One trick I can remember from my mothers cooking is using crushed crackers to make cracker meal.
The deep fryer cooks them quickly and evenly and the best part is does not leave them greasy. My mother in law taught me the trick of baking them first and then flash frying them. This step helps cut down fat absorption but is not necessary
You can use cracker coating to coat bigger pieces and make chicken fried chicken or planks. My seasoning is never the same close but I like to switch it up.
To truly be southern serve up with a glass of sweet iced tea, salad and some yummy sauce
