Servings 5 servings
- 3 lbs chicken breast cut into strips
- 1 ½ cup flour
- 1 ½ cup panko may sub breadcrumbs, cornflakes or corn meal
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 teaspoons red chili flakes
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper optional
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray.
In a large zip lock combine the ½ flour, ½ panko, spices and chicken tenders, then shake to fully coat the chicken.
Pour buttermilk into the bag and mix the contents of all bag thoroughly. Marinate for 1 hour or overnight.
When marinated roll each tender into the remaining panko and flour. Then transfer to the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of your chicken tenders.
In a small bowl microwave together the honey and 1 teaspoon of red chili flakes for 2 minutes. (add ½ teaspoon of cayenne pepper if you’d like the sauce real spicy) Remove and cool a bit.
When everything has cooled enough to handle, coat each chicken strips with the honey sauce. Serve warm and enjoy.
