Homemade Chicken Tenders

Updated: Oct 4, 2021

If you want a fun and easy meal that whips up quick you have to make these Homemade Chicken Tenders. The whole family will love them.

PREP TIME: 8 minutes

COOK TIME: 10 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 18 minutes



1 pound Chicken Tenderloins

1 cup All-Purpose Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 teaspoon Black Pepper

1/2 teaspoon Garlic Powder

3/4 cup Buttermilk

1 large Egg

2 teaspoons Hot Sauce

Canola Oil, for frying


1. In a medium-sized bowl add the flour, baking powder, salt, pepper and garlic powder, mix together well and set aside. In another medium-sized bowl add the buttermilk, egg and hot sauce, whisk together until fully combined.

2. Place about 3 inches of oil into a heavy bottom skillet with deep sides, I also like to use a Dutch Oven for this. Bring the oil up to temperature over medium-low heat. Oil temperature should be around 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

3. While the oil is heating, dredge the chicken tenders by placing the tenders one at a time into the flour mixture. Coat the tender well, shake off any excess flour. Dip the tender into the buttermilk mixture, allowing any excess to drip off. Place the tender back into the flour mixture and coat well, pat the flour down onto the tender to form a good crust.

4. Once the oil is ready, carefully place the tenders into the hot oil, do not crowd the pan, you will have to do this in batches. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side, until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit and they are golden brown and crispy. Place on a wire rack while you fry the rest of the tenders.

5. Serve warm with your choice of dipping sauce and fries.
