    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    Ok, so it's a contest between my husband and I to come up with the most ridiculous recipe name. I think I'm winning! There were a few already up my sleeve, so I kind of had a head start. These are panko-coated chicken tenders, VERY crispy and flavorful, served with a soy sauce-based dipping sauce. You can simplify the sauce component by mixing equal parts soy sauce and rice vinegar and using this in place of the listed dipping sauce.

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    TENDERS

    • 3/4-1 lb chicken tenders
    • 2 eggs, beaten in a bowl for dredging
    • 1 cup flour, for dredging
    • 2 teaspoons cajun seasoning, to season the flour
    • salt and pepper
    • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs, for dredging
    • oil, 1/4 inch in pan for frying

    DIPPING SAUCE

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Mix the dipping sauce ingredients together and chill until ready to serve.
    2. 2
      Heat 1/4-inch of oil in a large skillet.
    3. 3
      Place three large plates on the counter.
    4. 4
      Mix the Cajun seasoning and the salt and pepper to taste into the flour and pour all of it onto the first large plate.
    5. 5
      Situate the bowl containing the beaten eggs next in line.
    6. 6
      Following that, put the panko on the next large plate and place the last empty large plate after that. This is where you'll place your breaded tenders before cooking.
    7. 7
      Dredge each tender in flour, shaking off excess, then in egg wash, let drip a bit, then in the panko, being sure to coat all surfaces. Place coated tenders on the last plate and finish coating the remaining chicken pieces.
    8. 8
      When the surface of the heated oil is shimmering, but not smoking (about 350F), carefully place the tenders in the oil and fry until medium-dark golden, about 2 minutes per side. You can test if the oil is ready by dipping the tip of a tender in the oil; if it bubbles and sizzles furiously, it's ready! Watch carefully because they can cook quickly.
    9. 9
      Drain on paper towels and serve with dipping sauce.
