Homemade Chicken Tender

This is a super simple recipe that has four ingredients, and one of my favorites!

  • 2lbs of boneless chicken breast
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 container of Progresso Italian bread crumbs
  • Vegetable oil

Start with 2lbs of boneless chicken breast

Don't forget the Progresso Italian bread crumbs,
and scramble up your egg until the eggs are frothy.

Slice your chicken breast up into chicken
tender size pieces, or buy pre-cut chicken tenders.
I use a filet knife and that works like a dream.

Put your tenders, a couple at a time, into the egg
mixture make sure they are covered. Next roll your tenders all around
in the bread crumbs until they are also completly covered, then set aside
Now your chicken tenders are ready to fry.

Heat your veggy oil on medium high, but watch your oil so it doesn't get too hot.
Through out your frying process you may need to turn it down a bit,
so that the oil doesn't get too hot, and also because you may have bread crumbs
at the bottom of your pan and you don't want them to burn either.

As you are frying up your tenders slide them into a
pre-heated 200 degree oven. This will
keep your tenders warm, but won't dry them out.

Now you are ready for dinner. Not only did we have our favorite tenders,
(which by the way also taste fantastic with a little fresh lemon squeezed on them)
but we also had steamed broccoli, and Pasta With Garlic Cream . It can't get
any easier, or taste any better.
