Buttermilk Crispy chicken tenders
Like all good fried chicken recipes, these bad boys start with a buttermilk marinade. Buttermilk is great for a few reasons. Firstly, it allows you to easily coat the chicken with flour (unlike eggs which are far more likely to go clumpy). Secondly, it’s slightly acidic, meaning it penetrates and tenderizes the chicken as it marinates. Because who doesn’t want tender chicken tenders?
I can’t find buttermilk, what can I substitute?
One sub you could use is yogurt (for acidity) thinned out with a little milk (to help texture for dredging). You could also add acidity to milk (white vinegar, lemon juice) and let it rest, then mix and use as a marinade.
Spicy Chicken Marinade
The marinade itself is really simple. You just need buttermilk, hot sauce, salt and white pepper.
How long to marinate for crispy chicken?
Ideally you’re looking for a minimum of 2 hours, with best results leaving over night. As long as you have time for though, even 30mins is better than no marinating!
Process shots: add buttermilk, hot sauce, salt & pepper to a bowl (photo 1), stir then add tenders (photo 2), combine then cover and marinate (photo 3).
Then we put the chicken fingers in the liquid mixture that you mixed, and then put the wet fingers in the flour and rusks.
And after making sure that the oil is heated to an appropriate degree, we put the chicken fingers inside and fry them until they are cooked and browned, then we remove them from the pan and filter them from the oil.
With this, we have finished our Spicy Crispy Chicken Fingers recipe, and it is ready to be served.
All you have to do is decorate these pieces with onion rings and chopped parsley, and serve them with garlic mayonnaise sauce, on a plate suitable for eating with your family members.
Enjoy It 🙂
