Indian Spiced Chicken Tenders - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Chicken tenders makes an ideal appetizer for a dinner party or game night. Mostly, the chicken tenders are just chicken fillets rolled in flour, egg and breadcrumbs. I always try to bring some innovative way to cook traditional recipes. Here, I present a fusion recipe of chicken tenders with Indian flavors. The meat was cooked in Indian spices and then applied the American way of cooking the tenders (for the coating). This fusion recipe worked wonders in my family and is a regular in my list of to-do's.
