This is my favorite dish to serve guests because it is elegant looking without taking a lot of time to prepare it. Made with chicken tenders soaked in buttermilk, and fried until golden brown. The chicken tenders are then topped with a finger-licking sauce that takes it right over the top in flavor! I have been making this dish for several years, and I have never found anyone that didn't like it. A great TNT recipe! Enjoy!
