Thanks Step by step Crispy Fried Chicken Tenders Recipe with Photos of each step.
This is one those recipes about which I’m super confident. These are meant to please. The double coating stays crisp and give enough crunch. You can also fry them ahead and keep in oven until served.
The spicy level is also balanced and makes it a good starter or appetizer. The cornflakes coating is plain so to balance that we add enough spice in marination and coatings. The taste is crispy and slightly spicy.
To cut tenders out of chicken breast. First hammer each chicken breast lightly to flatten. Then cut the chicken breast diagonally. Divide longer strip in to two. Also slice thicker strips into two strip.
These strips will puff up slightly. Plus the coating will also make them thick so make sure chicken strip have less than ½ inch thickness .
