How to Make Your own Breaded Chicken

Although you can buy your breaded chicken tenders from the supermarket, it’s not actually that difficult to make them yourself at home. With this method you can make a nice crunchy bread coating that will stay put on your chicken no matter what.

Before cooking your chicken we need to make sure that it is dry first. We can do this either by patting it down with paper towels or leaving it in the refrigerator uncovered until it dries out. From there, season your chicken with salt and pepper then cover in flour. Next dip the chicken in a bowl of beaten eggs. Once the chicken has been coated, you can cover with breadcrumbs, for best results leave in the refrigerator for around 30 minutes before cooking.
