The Pioneer Woman Chicken Tenders recipe is out of this world amazing! My family raved and raved about these moist, delicious chicken tenders. My husband and boys were already asking me to make these again before dinner was even over.
You start with a few ingredients – chicken strips and buttermilk. Place in a bowl and let them sit in the fridge for 15-20 minutes or longer.
Next you add flour and seasoning together in a bowl and slowly stir in buttermilk to make some crumbles for the chicken tenders. Don’t skip this part because it s what’s makes these chicken tenders so good!
Roll the chicken strips in the flour mixture and place on a plate. Heat your oil in a skillet and once ready place the chicken tenders in oil carefully and fry on each side.
We hope you enjoy these homemade “The Pioneer Woman” Chicken Tenders as much as we do! They are always a crowd pleaser at our house.
