Recipe by HSingARMYmom
READY IN: 50mins


  • 1
    lb chicken tenders
  • 1
    cup flour
  • 1
    teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1
    teaspoon pepper (we like to use white pepper but regular black will work fine too)
  • 2
    eggs, beaten
  • 12
    cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 34
    cup cracker, crushed (I used Parmesan Garlic Cheez-its)
  • oil, for frying


  • Combine flour with garlic powder & pepper in a bowl.
  • Crack eggs and beat till throughly combined in a seperate bowl.
  • Combine parmesan cheese and crushed crackers in a third bowl.
  • Start by coating the chicken pieces in flour, then dip in egg wash and then dip into cracker mix.
  • Set coated chicken onto a plate. When finished coating all the chicken, put the plate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to let the coating "set-up".
  • In a large fry pan, heat 1/2" of oil to medium high heat (I don't use a thermometer but I'm guessing 350 degrees).
  • Pan fry in small batches till golden brown on all sides - depending on size of your tenders, 5-6 minutes per side.
  • Remove to a paper towel lined plate till all the chicken is done.
  • We served it with pasta and spaghetti sauce but i'm guessing it would go with about anything.
