For Honey Mustard

How to cook Extra Crispy Chicken Tenders

1. Prepare chicken breasts. Cut into even pieces and put in a medium-sized round container.

2. Add the Garlic powder, Onion powder and, Creole seasoning. Then, toss together to season. Make sure that the chicken breasts are completely covered.

3. In a medium-sized bowl, add 2 cups of flour, garlic powder, 1 tablespoon of Creole seasoning, and salt. Whisk together.

4. In a separate medium-sized bowl, add 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of milk, eggs, and 1 tablespoon of oil. Whisk until creamy and smooth.

5. In a deep pan or fryer, heat oil to 350 degrees. Remember that we should deep fry the chicken for best result. Then, add 3 to 5 cups of oil or enough to cover the chicken when frying.

6. Dredge the chicken in the egg mixture and coat with flour.

7. Using a tong (to avoid oil splatter) put the chicken into the hot oil. Cook for at least 8 to 10 minutes or when golden brown. The chicken floats when it is already cooked.

8. Do not overcrowd your fryer to avoid greasy chicken. Add only 8 to 10 pieces depending on the size of your pan. Make sure to adjust the heat from time to time to prevent the chicken from burning. Who would want a burnt chicken?

9. When the chicken breasts are done, put it on a paper towel to drain excess oil. Sprinkle with salt while still hot to add more flavour.

10. In a medium-sized bowl, add all the ingredients to make the honey mustard sauce. Stir until all ingredients are well-mixed.

11. Serve and Enjoy!
