I've been craving buffalo chicken tenders for so long- and for the last 2 years, since we've been ethical omnivores, and we don't buy the prepackaged tenders made from tortured factory farmed chicken by Tyson, I have hoped to gather the courage to try making our own buffalo tenders at home using free range-farm raised chicken. And yesterday, I did just that!
I was inspired by a recipe on Pinterest again, and it's from Martha Stewart again as well. That woman is pretty amazing- I don't think I've ever tried a recipe of hers that I didn't like.
David ranked these 9 stars out of 10. The missing star stems from the fact that the batter came off the chicken on a few pieces that we ate. I did not let them sit after battering them, so maybe that had something to do with it. Next time, I will definitely allow them to rest before frying, and I do believe I will make a double batch so that I can attempt to freeze them and make my own fast food. Also, I suggest using an oil splash guard while frying, because my stove was an oily mess after frying the whole pound of tenders! I can not tell you how yummy these were- you'll just have to try them! Let me know if you find out how to keep the batter stuck to the tender.
