Chicken Marinade Ingredients 1-2 Chicken Breasts
1 cup buttermilk
4 tbsp lemon pepper
2 tbsp black pepper
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1-1/2 cups Bread crumbs
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp lemon pepper
3/4 tsp garlic powder
3/4 tsp paprika
3 tsp buttermilk
2-3 cups vegetable oil, for cooking
Burger buns butted
Condiments of choice
To marinate the chicken:
Clean and remove fat from the chicken breasts. Cut each Chicken breast in half to avoid them being to thick.
Wrap them in a plastic wrap and flatten with a baking pin or any large object until they are the breasts are flattened out.
In a large bowl, mix the chicken breasts with the marinade ingredients.
Cover the bowl tightly and place in a bowl and refrigerate for at least 30 mins up to 24 hours.
To make the breading: In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika. Whisk until well blended.
Prepare a baking sheet with aluminum/parchment paper foil for easy cleanup.
Remove the chicken flattened breasts from the marinade and toss into the breading mixture. Be sure to press the chicken firmly into the breading so clumps adhere to the meat. (It’s a messy job: use one hand to remove the wet tenders from the bag and the other to toss in the breading.) Set breaded tenders on the prepared baking sheet.
To fry the chicken:
Line another baking sheet with a few layers of paper towels and set next to the stove.
Add oil to a large, high-sided pot until the level reaches about 3/4-inch. Heat over medium-high heat until oil is shimmering (about 350°).
Place several chicken tenders in the hot oil without crowding the pan.
Cook until golden brown on the bottom side, a few minutes, then flip and cook until the second side is also golden, a few minutes more.
Optional : Bake for 10-15 mins 350°
