Ingredients

  • 4 large chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 quart peanut oil for frying
  • ½ cup of medium hot sauce such as Frank's or Texas Pete
  • ½ cup 1 stick of butter
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat oil in deep fryer to 360 degrees.  
  • Combine eggs and milk in a medium mixing bowl and stir until combined.  In a separate large mixing bowl combine the flour, panko, salt, pepper, and seasoned salt.  Bread the chicken by dipping it first in the egg/ milk mixture, then the panko/ flour mixture.  Work in batches to avoid the chicken sticking together.
  • Lay the chicken in a single layer in the deep fry basket and lower it into the oil.  Deep fry for 5 minutes.  Remove basket from oil and remove chicken onto paper-towel lined plate.  
  • Combine the butter, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce in a medium saucepan, stirring as the butter melt.  Place the chicken tenders in the pan of sauce, tossing to coat.
  • Remove to a plate and serve immediately.

Notes

Deep fried foods are best serve immediately.  To store any leftovers, allow to cool before storing in the fridge and reheat in the oven.
