INGREDIENTS
Servings: 4
Frying oil, preferably, peanut
Chicken breasts
2 lb., skin and bones removed, cut into long strips
3 eggs, beaten
All-purpose flour
1 cup
Dry breadcrumbs
2 cups
Garlic powder
1 tsp.
Lemon pepper
1 tsp.
Cayenne pepper
½ tsp.
Salt
½ tsp.
Freshly ground black pepper
½ tsp.
DIRECTIONS
  • Turn on the deep fryer to preheat frying oil to 350°F/180°C.
  • Arrange in separate shallow bowls:
  1. all-purpose flour,
  2. 3 beaten eggs,
  3. dry breadcrumbs mixed with garlic powder, lemon pepper, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt.
  • Coat the chicken in flour, egg, and breadcrumb mixture.
  • Fry in batches, for 6-8 minutes per batch. Use a slotted spoon or kitchen tongs to transfer golden brown chicken to a paper-towel-lined platter to drain the excess oil.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the honey-mustard dipping sauce:
  • Mix all the ingredients from the “For the honey-mustard dip” section. Taste and adjust salt and pepper to your liking.
  • Serve chicken tenders hot with the honey-mustard sauce.
  • Tip: excess sauce will keep in the refrigerator for up to a week.
