  • 1 pound chicken tenders
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup dijion mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1/4 cup honey

  • Make the batter by first combining the club soda and the egg together. Whisk together until they form a uniform mixture. Then add in the dry ingredients: 1 1/2 cups flour, baking powder, salt, pepper. Stir together. Allow the batter to sit for a few minutes.   
  • Remove chicken from package and pat dry with a paper towel. Dredge the chicken with the 1/2 cup flour. Preheat the oil to 350 degrees F. Dip chicken into the batter an fry a few pieces at a time.  If there is any additional batter left over, could make some onion rings, but the excess batter should be discarded.
