    I got this right! Do not cook chic tenders at 365 oil fir 8-10 mins per side! That would be a disaster. 5 mins total at 350 was perfect. Now seasoning, if you follow this recipe you’ll have bland chicken. You have to go bolder in the flour dredge. Used 2 table spoons seasoned salt, tbl spoon of garlic powder, onion powder and chili powder each in the flour. Also added cornstarch, the result was crunchy tasty heaven! Ate with basmati rice, corn and a salad. I would come up with some kind of sauce or dipping sauce to go’re favorite? Hmm, so many choices...

    Turned out really good. Reminded me of restaurant quality chicken. I added more spices to the flour to add more flavor than just salt and pepper.

    So easy! And it was actually quite tasty. I ended up making chicken nuggets but it was still perfect. I actually made the recipe for one serving, but I still used a whole egg, because I wasn't about to waste 3/4 an egg. Haha. I paired this with mashed potatoes and gravy!

    Really good chicken tenders, especially for beginners (despite the OP’s warning; just make sure to check the oil temp before you fry!!!)....My bf and I are planning to cook again but add more flavor...these are pretty basic strips.

    I fixed this tonight for dinner. My husband ate two plates of it ! Turned out so juicy and crispy. I used my iron skillet and also made cornbread using a iron skillet. I used season salt instead of just salt . I definitely will be preparing this again soon!

    A good basic recipe that can be easily embellished. I followed the directions as stated for my 4 & 3 yr old grandsons. for the rest I added Old Bay Seasoning.

    First time frying chicken! Added a half teaspoon of cayenne, paprika, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder (did I go overboard?). Used Canola oil. Frying for 5 minutes on each side worked well. Make sure the temp is high enough. Made a chipotle aioli sauce too. Tasted great!!
