I married a man who is very much a meat and potatoes kinda guy, specifically red meat. He will eat chicken on occasion but it is far from his favorite form of protein. I, on the other hand, could eat chicken on a daily basis with no complaints whatsoever. So when I happen upon a chicken recipe that I think I will love, I am hesitant to try it because I know he doesn't really love chicken. That being said, this recipe looked so good that I took a chance with it and the verdict is in: We BOTH love it! :) Hope you like it as much as we do!
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. onion powder
3/4 tsp. salt, plus extra for seasoning chicken tenders
2 Tbsp. milk
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken tenders
1 1/2 c. panko bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 limes, cut into wedges
1/4 c. honey
In a bowl whisk together flour, chili powder, onion powder, and salt.
Add egg and milk and whisk until smooth.
Salt chicken tenders on both sides (you always want to season chicken well before coating it).
Add salted chicken tenders to flour mixture and stir to coat well.
Place panko crumbs in a separate dish such as a pie plate.
Dip each chicken tender in bread crumbs and place on a plate.
Warm vegetable oil in a skillet over medium high heat.
Once the oil is hot, add chicken and fry for two minutes, then turn tenders over and fry another two minutes. Repeat this process until tenders are nicely browned and chicken is fully cooked.
Transfer chicken to serving plate.
Squeeze lime wedges over chicken and drizzle with honey just before serving.
