Recipe Notes

  • For batch cooking, cook all chicken dishes in small batches. Once all the tendrils are cooked, put them all together in the pan and heat for 2 minutes. Pat the roast chicken dry so that the breadcrumbs adhere completely (this also prevents them from getting smoked). so that they can coat the chicken pieces evenly. Make sure you don’t overcook. The chicken should reach 165 degrees.
  • Store leftover tenders in an airtight container or large resealable bag in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days.
  • To reheat them and keep them crispy, you can use your deep fryer. Preheat to 350F and bake the baking sheets for 5 to 10 minutes, turning them in half, until very hot.
  • For great coverage on chicken roasts, be sure to cut them evenly so they cook evenly.
  • Chicken dishes are tender when not overcooked! Use a meat thermometer and test one or two pieces at 165 ° F before removing them from the fryer.
