Moreish fried chicken pieces that no one can resist! Strips of chicken breast are coated in buttermilk and then seasoned breadcrumbs before being fried to a golden crisp.
I sliced the chicken up and put in the buttermilk mixture overnight. I didn't put the egg in though. The chicken was seriously well coated in the mixture so I didn't put the breadcrumb mixture in the bag to add the chicken, to shake about. I just dipped the chicken in the bowl with the breadcrumb mixture. I would suggest given them another coating of breadcrumb mixture before frying. I used the frying pan with plenty of vegetable oil and they came out lovely. Made double the batch to have for lunch the next day. Next time I will try giving them a dip in egg mix and recoat as suggested by Lynlor and mibby add in some different herbs or spices. But all round a great method for fried chicken and the hubby enjoyed it too! - 26 Oct 2017

This was a great recipe. Although I followed the ingredient list, I made mine low fat. Instead of frying, bake the strips on 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the center is white. Also, I used skim mild instead of buttermilk. Spray the cookie sheet with fat free butter flavored spray and voila! very low fat tenders! If the powder looks like it's not baked golden, don't woory, if the chicken is done, so is the breading. I also added a teaspoon each of rosmary, thyme and pepper. - 12 Nov 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
