  • 8 slices Texas Toast
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 4 tablespoons honey barbeque sauce

Chicken Strips

  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 2 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • oil for frying


Chicken Tender Instructions

  • Make the seasoned flour by combining flour, salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Stir the flour until it is well blended.
  • Make a batter of the seasoned flour and buttermilk by pouring in about 1/2 cup of the buttermilk into the flour. You want the batter a little shaggy. 
  • Coat the chicken with the batter and place on a rack and allow it to dry. The batter may fall off when cooking if you don't allow the batter to try the chicken.
  • Discard remaining buttermilk.
  • Heat oil to 350 degrees.
  • Gently place 3 or 4 breaded chicken tenders into the hot oil. Cook chicken tenders a few at a time until they are golden brown. Drain on a clean wire rack that has been placed on top of a baking sheet.

  •  Place three chicken fingers on each four slices of bread, then top with 2 slices of Monterey Jack Cheese, and then spread about 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce on one slice of the bread.
