Recipe

Skip the drive-thru and make crunchy, crispy chicken tenders at home. These tenders will quickly become a weekday meal the whole family will love. Simply follow along with the video below for step-by-step pan frying instructions.

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. water
  • 1 package At Home Mild Chicken Tenders Recipe
  • 1 egg
  • 1 package of chicken tenderloins (3-4 lbs. package)
  • Neutral vegetable oil, for pan frying

    PREPARATION

    Prepare

    • In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of water and the entire package of dry mix to create a crumbly texture.
    • In another bowl, beat 1 egg.
    • Pat chicken tenderloins dry.

    Heat

    • Fill skillet halfway with oil and place over medium-high heat to reach 375° F. Oil is ready to use when a pinch of breading dropped in the oil sizzles without burning.

    Fry

    • Dip tenderloins in egg wash and then the dry crumble mix, pressing to coat fully.
    • Add chicken to hot oil and cook each side for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown.
    • Remove from pan when juices run clear and internal temperature reaches 165° F.
    • Enjoy!

    PRO TIPS

    Don't Crowd the Fryer

    Don’t overcrowd your fryer! That will drop the temperature of the oil. If you know you’ll have a crowded pot, be sure to start a bit hotter than the desired fry temperature.

    Crispy Fried Chicken

    To create craggy pockets of fried-ness, dribble a few tablespoons of buttermilk over your batter and rub it together to create small clumps.
