1 container egg beaters

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp black pepper

2 lbs chicken breasts, cut into tenders

vegetable oil (for frying)


Coarsely grind or crush the two cereals and set aside. In another shallow dish pour the egg beaters into it and set aside.

Stir together the flour, onion and garlic powders and black pepper. Set aside. Dip the chicken: pieces in the seasoned flour. Move around to coat well, then shake off the excess flour. Dip in the egg beaters, coating well, then dip in the cereal mixture, coating well. Heat oil in a large heavy skillet to 325.

Drop coated chicken tenders carefully in the hot oil and cook until golden brown and fully cooked, 3 to 5 minutes depending on size.
