Ingredients
Directions

Submerge the chicken strips in the buttermilk for 15 to 20 minutes (or longer if you'd like).

In another bowl, combine the flour and seasoning salt (or other seasonings if you prefer). Mix this together well. Next, gradually drizzle 1/4 to 1/2 cup of the buttermilk into the flour mixture and stir lightly with a fork as you add it to achieve clumps.

Heat about 1 inch vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-low to medium heat.

Remove a few of the buttermilk-soaked chicken strips and place them in the flour mixture, turning them over to coat thoroughly. Place them on a plate. Continue coating the chicken strips until they are all ready to cook.

When the oil is sufficiently heated, begin cooking the strips a few at a time. Cook them for about a minute and a half or so on each side. When golden and crispy and the chicken is done, remove them to a paper-towel-lined plate. Do not allow them to burn.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Yum!

Great recipe! When I soak chicken in buttermilk I add a little salt and Frank's Red Hot to it. It gives the chicken a little more flavor. I also added chili powder to the flour for a spicy chicken tender. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Pretty good, and easy to make :) item not reviewed by moderator and published
y y family loved this recipe. Why did you not include your honey mustard dipping sauce recipe? In watching your excellent TV program you use as an ingredient saying it's chicken or beef BROTH but the container says STOCK, I always use stock because it has more intense flavor. Would you address this on one of your programs please. Do you use one more than another? We love your program and these chicken tenders will be made again and again. Thank you Ree for your friendly, informative program. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these tonight and boy they do not disappoint! Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. I used boneless skinless chicken breast, fileted and cut into strips. The secret is definitely mixing some buttermilk in with the flour. Next time, going to change up the spices but this is a definite go-to fried chicken recipe! Thanks Ree! item not reviewed by moderator and published
