E. Nigma's Note:
Nice and crispy and a tad spicy, the perfect appetizer. The trick to perfect fried chicken is to control the temperature of your oil. Too hot and the food burns before it's fully cooked, too cool and it won't get crispy and it will get very greasy. Use a deep-fry thermometer and a heavy pot so that when you add the food the temperature won't drop too drastically. Brining the chicken is the best way to make it juicy and flavorful, but I wouldn't recommend doing it overnight as that's too long. Two hours should do it.

- 1Combine the water, kosher salt, and sugar in a container to form a brine. Add the chicken tenders and let this marinate in the fridge for 2 hours.
- 2Combine the flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, seasoned salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a container and mix very well to combine.
- 3Mix the eggs and milk in another container.
- 4Preheat your oil to 350 degrees.
- 5Dredge the chicken tenders in the flour mixture and pat off excess.
- 6Dip the tenders in the egg mixture and drain excess.
- 7Dredge the chicken tenders in the flour a second time and set them on a plate. Put them in the fridge to dry out for about 20 minutes. This will help the coating stick to the chicken better.
- 8Once the oil is hot, fry the tenders in small batches for about 5 minutes and then drain on paper towels.
- 9Serve with your favorite dipping sauces!
