Every once in a blue moon, I will make a fried food. Tonight just happened to be one of those rare nights when the stars aligned just perfectly. The kids were begging me for chicken tenders and garlic fries (look for that recipe soon). I decided to give in to their demands. I usually bake our nuggets and fries, however, it was getting late and I had a very restless family on my hands. There was going to be a revolt if dinner wasn’t done quickly. To save time and to do a throwback to eating out, we got the big pot out and went to town.
Fried Chicken Tenders
*Some people add milk, water, buttermilk to their eggs. I prefer to keep it simple.
*I use non-seasoned panko breadcrumbs.
*I start with 2 eggs and whisk more as needed
* I replace my breadcrumbs when they get too wet from the eggs and no longer stick to the chicken.
*I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, red pepper flakes
*If using a pot, I highly recommend using an oil thermometer to get the correct temp. They are not that expensive. I got mine on sale for $6.)
