How do you make crispy chicken tenders?
Moist and tender chicken tenders are often served in chicken sandwiches (especially as a meal or a quick dinner) and many other cuisines. Typically people associate fried chicken with delicious restaurant meals.
However, many home cooks have noticed that even at restaurants, they have found that there is often the option of crispy skin on the chicken tenders so that it can be enjoyed even more.
What makes chicken crispy, flour or cornstarch?
The main ingredient in chicken crisp is flour. The result of using cornstarch, also known as corn flour, as a thickener is that the chicken tenders become crispy after they are breaded.
Many restaurants use this method to make their fried chicken tenders because it gives the fried chicken a close texture and taste.
Does dipping chicken in egg make it crispier?
When you dip chicken in an egg, it depends on how you prepare the chicken. Many people tend to fry their chicken and then dip it into flour for a crispy piece of chicken. Others dip their meat into beaten eggs before they are breaded with flour.
The added benefit of doing this is that the bottom part of the breading has a cushion once it is fried to achieve that extra crispy texture that many people love about fried chicken.
Although the bird is the most common meat, chicken is also one of the best. Chicken can sometimes be a little more expensive, but it is very healthy and has lots of good nutrients.
