panko crusted chicken

last friday, we left a bar to go home and make our own chicken tenders.

and i'm glad we did.

they were easy. fast. and tasted a heck of a lot better than the bar version.

panko crusted chicken tenders
adapted from food network's panko chicken nuggets

1 egg
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 pound chicken tenders
1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
hearty pinch paprika & garlic powder
1 teaspoon italian seasoning
vegetable oil

  1. pound the tenders flat with a mallet or bottom of a pan.
  2. mix the egg & buttermilk and place the chicken tenders in the mixture.
  3. in a separate square or rectangular pan, mix the panko and seasonings.
  4. in a saute pan, add 1/4 to 1/2 inch vegetable oil and heat over medium.
  5. lift one tender out of the milk mixture and let excess drip off. dip both sides in the bread crumbs and put into the hot oil.
  6. cook about 4 minutes on each side, or until done. repeat with remaining tenders.
  7. cool on a cooling rack set over paper towels so the excess oil drips off and the tenders stay crispy.
