My Super Simple Fried Chicken Tenders

Hey y’all!!  When I started my blog a few years back I was constantly uploading recipes and sharing my favorite food spots with y’all.  As I have grown up, my taste buds and the way I cook has grown as well, so I thought this would be the perfect time to start sharing my new recipes and sharing my new way of making some of my favorite meals.  The first recipe I will be sharing is my new and improved chicken tender recipe, so let’s get started.

Here is what you will need:

Chicken Breasts



Corn Starch

Black Pepper

Slap Ya Mama


Garlic and Onion Powder

Hot Sauce

Seasonings used!

Our fav hot sauce

First things first, put some oil in your pan and put it on the stove so the oil can start getting hot and ready for the chicken.  Once you’re done with the oil, make sure you wash your chicken and then go ahead and cut them into strips.  After you cut the strips to your liking, then you will want to go ahead and coat each strip with your seasonings and don’t be lighthanded with it.  I typically use black pepper, slap ya mama, garlic and onion powder, a couple of dashes of paprika, and then mix it together.  If your chicken doesn’t look colorful like it does in the picture, then go ahead and add a little bit more seasoning.  After your chicken is seasoned properly, go ahead and do a few dashes of hot sauce, then mix together.  Your chicken won’t be spicy, but it does help the flour stick to the chicken once it’s in the oil.

After the seasonings

Once that is done go ahead and grab a separate bowl and add in some flour (enough to coat your chicken) into the bowl with some corn starch, black pepper, slap ya mama, and a little bit of paprika and garlic powder.  Then go ahead and mix it all together and get it ready to coat your chicken.  Place your chicken into the flour mix and make sure the chicken is completely coated and then place in your oil.  Make sure it’s not too hot, but the oil should definitely make some noise when you put the chicken in.

I typically let my tenders cook for about 5-8 minutes or until the flour looks like this on the chicken and then I will flip it and repeat the same steps.

The finished product

Once the strips are done, go ahead and place it either on a wire rack or on a paper towel to get all the excess oil off the food.  Once that is done, go ahead and plate it with your favorite sides and enjoy! I am trying to remember to snap pics of the food while I’m cooking, so I see more recipe blogs in the future.  Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope y’all enjoyed it.  Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss out on the next recipe and talk. to y’all later!!
