Toni’s Crunchy Chicken Tenders

I write a lot about home cooked versions being better than store or restaurant bought and my chicken tenders are the best example yet.   Toni’s Crunchy Chicken Tenders


  1. chicken tenderloins- 2 or 3 lbs
  2. flour- 1 cup
  3. panko bread crumbs- 1 box
  4. poultry seasoning- 3 or 4 tbspns
  5. eggs- 2 or 3
  6. vegetable oil


  1. combine flour, bread crumbs and seasoning in a large shallow bowl; mix well
  2. beat eggs in another shallow bowl
  3. heat vegetable oil, about 1/2 inch deep, in non-stick skillet over medium-high heat
  4. roll chicken first in egg and then in flour mixture
  5. fry until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes each side

Dipping Sauce:

Combine 2 parts mayonnaise to 1 part Dijon mustard and 1 part ketchup with a few shakes of Worcesthshire sauce.

What’s even better- if you have leftover chicken, reincarnate it.  If you still have plenty of chicken and want an easy main dish, simply lay chicken in baking dish and cover with marinara sauce; top with shredded parmesan cheese and bake until just warm, about 6 minutes.  Voila, Chicken Parmesan!
