DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat deep fryer to 360 degrees.
  • Combine chicken tenders and hot sauce in plastic bag. Store in refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour.
  • Combine flour, Cajun seasoning, and salt on one plate. Put buttermilk on second plate.
  • Place chicken tenders in flour and dredge to coat. Transfer to buttermilk, dredge, then return to flour and dredge once more. You should have a nice, thick crust.
  • Place breaded tenders on a wire rack for 5 minutes, to set the crust. If you skip this step, the crust may fall off during frying.
  • After crust has set, dredge once more in flour and drop into oil. You can skip the final dredge, but I find it makes for a crispier result.
  • Fry for 4-6 minutes until golden, brown, and delicious.
