Homemade Chicken Tenders

Who doesn't like chicken tenders or fried chicken?  When I took the package of chicken breast out of the freezer I realized they were really too big for me to fry so I cut them in strips to fry.  I am always afraid that with large chicken breast that it won't get cooked all the way through.  So give these a try soon.
It doesn't take much to make really good chicken tenders at home.
A couple of hours before you want to cook the chicken you will want to cut the chicken into strips.  Salt and pepper it a little.
Then cover the chicken pieces with buttermilk and let it soak in the fridge for a couple of hours.  You can put a drop or two of hot sauce in the buttermilk too to give the chicken a little zip.
When you are ready to batter and fry the chicken, get out a deep pan to put the flour in.  This will help keep the mess down a little.
To the flour I added some Paprika.
Seasoning salt
This Nature's Seasoning
Cayenne pepper.  You can leave this out or add more depending on how spicy you like your food.
Mix it well.
While your oil is heating in your skillet, dip a couple of pieces of chicken into the flour and coat well.
You don't want to put too many in the pan because you want to make sure they are well coated.
Place several pieces in the hot oil.  Make sure they don't touch and move them around a little with your tongs to make sure they are not sticking.
Turn when they are brown on one side.
Drain on a rack.
Serve with the honey mustard sauce I posted yesterday.
