These tenders are juicy and moist with a touch of spice. If you are familiar with Bojangles, these are very similar in taste to their spicy chicken. You can try the hot sauce and butter recipe or you can use honey mustard, ranch or whatever you like to dip your tenders in.

How to Make Spicy Chicken Tenders

Step-by-Step

  2. Add oil to cast iron skillet and turn heat to medium, allow 4-5 minutes for skillet to heat up. Put flour in a bowl.
  3. Remove tenderloins from bag and dip in buttermilk before rolling tender in flour. Shake the tender to remove excess flour.
  4. Once oil in skillet has heated up to the point that a little flour disperses quickly, add floured tenders to the skillet leaving a one gap in between the tenderloins. Fry until golden brown on each side about 3-4 minutes per side depending on the size of the tender.
