Chicken Tenders That Are Crispier Than Any Frozen Variety
Making your own breaded chicken fingers is so easy and delivers surprisingly excellent results. You can use boneless, skinless breast or thigh meat—or just precut chicken tenders, which are already in inch-long strips. The rest of the ingredients do the work for you, with flour helping the egg adhere to the meat, and egg helping the bread crumbs (use panko for maximum crunch) stick to the flour. Fry the pieces lightly in olive oil until they've just browned, and you'll be amazed at how quickly you've made a crisp, delicious meal.
