Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix eggs, honey mustard, and pepper together in a bowl. Mix flour, chicken seasoning, cayenne, red pepper flakes, seasoning salt, and salt together in a second bowl. Mix bread crumbs and garlic salt together in a third bowl.

  • Dredge chicken tenders in the egg-honey mixture, then in the flour mixture, then back in the egg-honey mixture, and finally in the breading mixture. You want a medium coating on each tender.

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Fry tenders in the hot oil until breading is dark and crispy and chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 10 minutes per side.

Cook's Notes:

Instead of plain flour, I use a seasoned flour mix such as Kentucky Kernel(R).

You can use 2 sliced chicken breasts instead of chicken tenders.

If you happen to have leftovers, you can make a simple chicken salad with them as well which tastes amazing! I just added mayonnaise, dill salad cubes, and salt and pepper! Yummy!

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.

8.23.21 First, let me say that this chicken tastes nothing at all like Chick-fil-A® and IMO, has MANY issues. Two teaspoons each cayenne and crushed red pepper flakes for two servings would make this inedible for most people. Why does it have seasoning salt, garlic salt, and salt making it a sodium nightmare? If you cooked chicken tenders for 20 minutes over medium-high heat, the chicken would turn into a cinder. I couldn’t taste even a hint of honey mustard, this tasted just like I’d breaded a piece of chicken and fried it. A nutritional splurge is OK occasionally, but this recipe is simply unhealthy in every respect, and just not worth it. Sorry for the bad first review, and I don’t want to discourage others from trying it, but reviews need to be honest, and this just didn't work for us. I'm giving it 2 stars because we ate it, but needless to say, I will not be making this again. Read More

20 minutes cooking for a 1/2 a chicken breast? Or a tender? So much breading, so so much salt and the spices would make this way too spicy for children. This reads like a college kid made it up. Read More
