Heat cooking oil in a deep large pot in order to prevent popping and splatter over medium heat. Once heated enough so that it sizzles if you drop batter into it, place chicken tenders in the oil. Cook the chicken tenders for 3 minutes on each side, using a pair of tongs to flip them.

    I made these for breakfast and my son loved it, better than McDonald’s! I substitute breast for tenders, still good! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    I make chicken fingers similar to this but I smash potato chips and add to coating. Even the crumbs are delicious!

  3. That looks like heaven! Can you believe my husband doesn’t like biscuits? It makes no sense! I don’t think that’s going to stop me from making these though. I’ll eat his biscuit too! ????
