A buttermilk marinade makes these chicken tenders juicy, tender, and full of flavor.

What You'll Need

  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, low fat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons Creole seasoning, divided
  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken tenders
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Shortening, Canola oil, or peanut oil for deep frying

How to Make It

  1. In a large food storage bag, combine buttermilk, 1 teaspoons salt, and 2 teaspoons Creole seasoning. Add chicken; seal and refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  2. Combine flour and remaining 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning in a food storage bag. Add the chicken and toss to coat thoroughly.
  3. Heat about 1/4 to 1/2-inch  oil in a deep heavy skillet to about 350°.
  4. Fry several chicken pieces at a time. Fry, turning several times with tongs, until deep golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes for each batch. Serve with Come Back Sauce, Jezebel Sauce, or Sweet and Sour Sauce.
