Fried Chicken Recipe

I love fried chicken tenders, but they are expensive to buy at the grocery store. I decided to try and make a recipe for at home. It is super crispy and delicious. 

Fried Chicken Tenders

  • 1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • oil for frying
Now cut up the chicken breasts into strips or cubes and set it aside. 

Now we are going to set up a breading station. You will need three separate dishes. In dish one crack the two eggs and take a fork to beat them up to make an egg wash. 

In the second dish dump the flour and season it with pepper. 

In the third and final dish add the crushed Ritz crackers and Parmesan cheese.

Place about 1/2 inch of oil in a frying pan. Heat the pan over a medium heat. 

Now we need to bread the chicken. First roll it in the flour, then put it in the egg and last in the cracker crumbs. Continue until all chicken is breaded. 

Test your oil by putting a little flour in it. If the oil sizzles then it is ready for the chicken. Place the chicken in the pan and fry until golden brown on each side. It will be about 4-5 minutes on each side.

When both sides are browned, place the chicken on a paper towels to drain any excess oil and season with a little salt.


Until next time,
