  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper



  • In a deep bowl, combine buttermilk, salt, and pepper. Add the chicken tenders to the marinade and marinate for 1 hour or overnight.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the breading in a deep dish.
  • Remove the chicken tenders from the marinade allowing excess marinate to drip off.
  • Generously dredge into the breading mixture.
  • In a deep skillet, add oil for frying (about 3 inches deep). Once oil is hot, add one chicken at a time.
  • Fry the chicken tenders 6-8 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking (until all sides are crispy and golden).
  • Enjoy chicken tenders with the desired dipping sauce!


NOTE: Cooking time will vary depending on the size of the tenders.
