We wanted something similar to a McDonald’s snack wrap and this was absolutely DELICIOUS! The longest part was getting everything prepped to fry the chicken. 🤤
1.5 lbs chicken breast cut into small thin tenders (I used chicken tenderloin)
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
In a small bowl, combine mayo, buttermilk, yellow mustard, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder to make a ranch sauce.
In a shallow and wide bowl, add flour, cornstarch, baking powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Whisk and set aside.
In a deep bowl, add the buttermilk, salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Whisk together.
Add 3 tablespoons of the wet batter into the dry and mix around to create a flaky texture. Dip each tender/strip first in the wet batter, then into the dry, then back into the wet, and finally into the dry for a double coating. Make sure to let any excess wet or dry drip off before dipping into the next. Once all the tenders are breaded, allow to rest for 10 minutes.
Heat oil to about 365°F in a frying pan, about 1.5 to 2 inches high. Drop one tender in a time, making sure not to overcrowd them. Fry in 2 batches if needed. Fry until golden brown all around, about 7-8 minutes. Make sure to rotate the tenders around as needed for even browning. Transfer to a paper towel to drain any excess oil.
