So good, and easy. It was a hit. I followed another reviewers suggestion and baked the fried chicken tenders for about 7 minutes in a 350 degree oven after frying. The result was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. I skipped the honey mustard sauce and used store bought dressing. Great Friday night meal.
