Monica Keleher


I have just really learned to make a great crispy fried chicken and I thought the kids love tenders so why not make our own! Both boys are walking back in for seconds and thirds saying AWESOME Chicken! I have to agree it came out really really great! Also made onion rings and sweet potato chip fries! Hope you try it!

How to Make Deep Fried Chix Tenders,onion rings&sweet pot frie


  • 1For the chicken tenders. Cut the chicken into the size you want (I got whole boneless breast and cut them into long strips it's cheaper than the tenders and you can cut out the fat etc) Place the cut chicken into a zip lock bag with butter milk and some sriracha (hot sauce of you choice) and let it hang out in the fridge over night
  • 2The next day when you are ready to cook them, add the canola oil to the deep dryer or pan on the stove. Heat the oil to 375. While the oil is heating up, get a large plate and add the panko, cornmeal, breadcrumbs, flour, pimenton and herbs to the plate with salt and pepper and mix around.
  • 3When the oil is hot enough place it in the oil and cook until it's golden brown.
  • 4I put an wire rack on a cookie sheet to drain the food on a paper towel. Put the oven on warm and keep the chicken warm. (remove the paper towels first
  • 5The onion rings Place buttermilk about 1 1/2 cups in a pan with sriracha, and egg and mix. add the onions.
  • 6in a zip lock plastic bag add flour, corn meal pimenton and salt and pepper. When the oil is hot add a few onions to the bag and shake.
  • 7Drain on the wire rack over a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper
  • 8For the sweet potato chip fries. Place the cut potatoes in water. drain and pat dry. Add the sweet potatoes in batches until golden brown.
  • 9Remove and place on wire rack season with salt and pepper
  • 10The dip
    mayo, old bay, lemon, sriracha, salt, pepper, dijon, mix and taste, adjust yummy
