Sometimes you’ve just gotta go back to the basics — those good old-fashioned, tried and true recipes that even little kids will eat.
Lately I’ve been having the biggest craving for chicken tenders. So I decided to make a more adult version of one of my favorite childhood treats!
And you guys, these chicken tenders are GOOD, like reaaalllly good. Like lick your fingers to get every last bit of flavor good. Even better than the frozen chicken tenders/nuggets you can get in the freezer aisle (which I am also a fan of… #fancyfoodblogger). These crispy homemade chicken tenders are perfectly crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Mhmm.
