Homemade Breaded Chicken Tenders.

Homemade Breaded Chicken Tenders
 BBQ Garlic Dip

I must say, this was my first time making  breaded chicken tenders or as the girls call them nuggets.
They were succulent & de-lici-ous!! 
And will have you going back for more

And super easy to make
This is what you will need

Raw or defrosted Chicken tenders
Pickle Juice
 (Enough to cover you chicken)
1 Egg
1/4 Cup Milk
1/2 Cup Flour
1 Tblsp of Powdered Sugar
1/2 Tsp Paprika
1/2 Tsp Salt
1/4 Tsp Black Pepper
1/4 Tsp Garlic Powder
1/4 Tsp Dried Basil
1/4 Tsp Celery Salt

Oil for frying.

(For my recipe I Tripled the ingredients)

Dipping Sauce

1/2 cup Sour Cream
1/2 Cup Mayo
1/3 Cup of BBQ Sauce
2 Tsp Johnny's Garlic Seasoning

Mix all of the ingredients together

I cut my tenders in half and trimmed any fat off.

Using the JUICE from your pickles

Pop the tenders and juice into a Zip lock bag and leave to marinate for 2 hours

In the meantime, you can prepare the breading.

Put all the dry ingredients into a shallow dish 

And mix through thoroughly

Next mix the egg and milk in a shallow dish. And once the chicken has marinaded, pour out the juice
And put the chicken into the egg mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes.

Once the tenders have soaked for 15 mins in the mix,
Coat them in the dry mixture.

Set on a plate until your're ready to cook

I used Coconut & Vegetable Oil.
Heat oil.

Drop the tenders into your oil and cook for about 7 - 10 mins till golden brown and crispy
Or when sliced open there's no pink flesh.

Let the tenders, drain on kitchen towel then
Serve with dipping sauce

  2. I agree (disclaimer: I'm her husband!) The food was nothing short of amazing. It tastes even better than it looks. It's so much healthier than processed food too...
