This is my moms favorite recipe that I’ve made up. And honestly, I kind of agree. They’re the best chicken fingers I’ve ever had. 🙂
First get some chicken. I like to just cut up breasts, but you can get some already made tenders or something.
Get some vegetable oil with a little splash of olive oil going in a deep pan, this will make sure it’s hot enough when you put the chicken into it.
Now get a plate and put some flour, salt, and pepper on it. Mix this really good and set it aside.
In a big bowl, whisk flour, chicken stock, salt, pepper, old bay, this random spice mix I got at the dollar store, and rosemary.
Coat the chicken pieces in the flour then dump them in the bowl mixture. Dunk them in good to get them covered in the coating.
The oil should be hot enough now and bubbles should have formed a little bit on the bottom of the pan. Use some tongs and gently lay the chicken pieces in the oil. Do not over crowd the pan. Make sure you flip the chicken when the batter doesn’t look as wet. Lightly salt the side that’s done and wait a few more minutes until the other side is a nice golden brown color as well.
Take the chicken out of the oil and put it on a paper towel to soak up all the excess oil.
