    The fried chicken tenders recipe will result in crispy and tasty chicken pieces served with our homemade hot horseradish sauce for dipping. This dish is served alongside the most delicious potato salad and corn-on-the-cob.


    1 cup all-purpose flour

    Two large eggs, beaten

    Two tablespoons of water

    2 cups Italian-style, seasoned bread crumbs

    One teaspoon of ground black pepper

    One teaspoon of cayenne pepper

    24 chicken tenderloins

    2 quarts of oil to fry

    Dipping Sauce:

    1 cup mayonnaise

    1/2 cup sour cream

    Three tablespoons of prepared horseradish

    Three tablespoons of mustard that you have prepared

    One dash of Worcestershire sauce



    Make the breading station ready:

    1. Set flour in a shallow bowl.
    2. Put eggs and water into another shallow bowl.
    3. Put bread crumbs into another shallow bowl and add crushed black pepper, cayenne, and ground.

    step 1.

    Cover the chicken in flour, eggs, breadcrumbs, and small pieces to place aside.

    step 2.

    Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

    Step 3.

    Cook chicken in small portions until pieces of chicken are golden brown, between 6 and 8 minutes. Transfer chicken for draining onto the paper towels or on an aluminium rack.

    step 4.

    Create the sauce for dipping: Mix mayonnaise, soy sauce and mustard with horseradish and Worcestershire sauce in a tiny bowl. Mix thoroughly, then serve alongside chicken.


    Cornstarch is among our suggested ingredients to make the most crisp fried chicken. Cornstarch is commonly employed in Asian dishes for fried chicken. Combining the flour and cornstarch creates the best results. Replacing all the flour with cornstarch or trying the same non-gluten-based flour blend instead of the traditional all-purpose flour is possible.

    HOW LONG DO I cook fried chicken?

    The typical piece of chicken should be cooked for 14 minutes. Each chicken’s recipe is different, so ensure you cook every detail to a temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. The white meat is at maximum juiciness, around 160 degrees F. The dark meat should be cooked up to 170-175F for the perfect taste and texture.

    Why does the BREADING on my fried chicken fall off? What can I do to avoid this?

    One of the difficulties cooks face while making their fried chicken is that its crispy coating needs to be fixed. There are generally several causes that can cause this. Here are some suggestions for ensuring that the breading will stay intact.

    If you are coating or coating your chicken with breadcrumbs, be sure to wipe off excess buttermilk along with the remaining flour.

    Give the chicken a soft pat, then coat the chicken with flour to ensure that the flour can stick with the buttermilk.

    Be sure to fill your pan to a manageable capacity. Ensure the chicken won’t bump against other chicken parts and splatter off the breading.

    Make sure to flip the chicken only at least once during the cooking process. If you are agitated about your chicken, you are more likely to knock it off or scratch certain pieces of the crusty layer.


    Seasonings: The same ingredients as in the previous recipe (1/2 to marinade, half for batter).

    Flour: All-purpose flour can be used. Choose a gluten-free all-purpose flour mix if you need it.

    Cornstarch can be used to create a fried crisp chicken batter recipe. Potato starch can also be used as a replacement.

    Baking powder: Baking Powder assists in removing extra moisture from the chicken’s surface to create a crisper, more brown, battered chicken. Also, it makes tiny air bubbles to create a more fluffy and crisper crust. If you do not have it eliminate it (don’t change it out with baking soda).

    “Great recipe, and great method,” praises Ebcook. “Had no idea that making the batter turn into a paste and after that covering the pan while cooking could have such an impact! Absolutely a must-try.”

    “[This recipe makes] crispy and succulent chicken each times,” according to Nicole. “Made this twice in the past, and each time, it came out delicious. The chicken was marinated first to enhance the flavor, however the actual method of frying works just fine.”

    “This is my current favorite cooked chicken recipe that I’ve made fried,” says Renee Ann Galvan. “The only thing I changed different was to include garlic powder as well as crushed red peppers for a touch of spice.”
