These crunchy baked fowl tenders are lifestyles converting! the name of the game to certainly golden, clearly crunchy baked breaded chicken is to toast the breadcrumbs within the oven first. Bonus: No dirty fingers with my short crumbing approach!
that is a reader-favourite recipe protected by using popular demand in my debut cookbook “Dinner”!
Really crunchy Baked Chicken Tenders
There is no experience-exact story behind those crunchy Oven Baked bird Tenders. pretty simply, i am but to meet some thing deep fried that I didn’t love, but a) my waistline can’t have enough money the real issue on every occasion I sense adore it; and b) I reserve deep frying for “special occasions”. because… nicely, you know.
Mess, oil wastage, gluey hands.
Waistline. backside enlargement.
and so on and so on.
It also indignant me no give up that the breadcrumbs usually came out splotchy, regardless of how tons oil I used.
So that is how I make baked crumbed hen.
Baked breaded chicken – my way
- Toast the breadcrumbs within the oven for just a few mins. that is the course to without a doubt golden, without a doubt crunchy baked breaded hen regardless of a brief bake time (max 20 minutes for chook tenders). ps a good deal tons easier than pan frying!
- One dredge batter – the standard process for crumbing is flour then egg then breadcrumbs. For this short ‘n smooth recipe, I integrate the egg with flour plus mustard and mayo for flavour + oil (try and replicate deep fried) to make a thick batter in which the fowl is dredged. these things is first rate glue for the breadcrumbs!
- clean fingers! Use tongs to transfer the batter slathered fowl into the breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over breadcrumbs to cover, press down to stick. transfer to tray. surprise at smooth palms!!
It’s pictured above with a Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce. similar to Maccers. handiest homemade.
other Dipping Sauces: attempt the crimson Steak Sauce from the pork Kebabs, candy and sour Sauce, Thousand Island, Tartare or maybe a traditional Seafood Cocktail Sauce.
