While at the grocery store earlier this week I noticed they were having a sale on chicken tenders so, not really knowing what I was going to do with them but thinking I could figure something out, I picked some up. When it came time to make them, I still wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to do so I began scouring my spices and noticed the curry peaking out at me. I knew I didn’t really have the time to make Chicken Curry, but once I got the idea of curry in my head I couldn’t get it out. Finally, I thought that if I seasoned the flour just right I could get the curry flavor but in a crispy chicken finger form. Thus these curried chicken tenders were born.
I was talking to my mom recently about fried chicken and she told me about a little trick she had tried where she breaded the chicken in the flour and let it sit for a little while before frying it. She mentioned that the flour seemed to stick a bit better the longer you let it sit. I figured these chicken tenders would be the perfect chance to experiment and decided to give it a try. First, I dipped them in the egg/milk wash, then the curry/flour/bread crumb mixture and let them sit for about 15 minutes. When it came time to fry them I noticed that I didn’t loose nearly as much flour as I usually do. Thanks for the tip mom!
As far as a dip goes, I thought these were just fine without it but now that I think about it, they would also be good with a variety of chutneys. Enjoy!
