⅓ c. Hy-Vee corn starch
1 tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper
1 lbs. Hy-Vee True chicken breast tneders
Hy-Vee canola oil, for frying
Fresh Italian parsley, chopped; for garnish
Desired dipping sauce(s), for serving

Things To Grab

  1. Beat eggs with a fork in a medium bowl. Combine bread crumbs and Aleia's coat & crunch in a separate bowl. 

  2. Place corn starch and black pepper in the shaker bag from Aleia's coat & crunch package. 

  3. Coat tenders, 2 at a time, in corn starch mixture. Then dip chicken tenders in egg; shake off excess. Coat with panko mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 minutes.
