Spicy Thai Chicken Tenders

Ingredients
For the Tenders
  1. 1 pound chicken breast tenderloins
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  4. 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  5. 2 cups canola oil or more depending on size of skillet

For the Sauce
  1. 2 cloves garlic minced
  2. 2 TBS brown sugar
  3. 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce
  4. 1.5 TBS Sriracha hot sauce this is a medium amount of spice, tone it down if you don't like spicy
  5. 1 tsp creamy peanut butter
  6. 1 inch fresh ginger grated
  7. 2 TBS water
  8. 1 TBS cornstarch
  9. 2 TBS cilantro chopped

Instructions
  • Add oil to a frying skillet (should be about 1.5 inches of oil), and heat over medium heat.
  • Place egg into a shallow bowl, set aside. Set panko and red pepper flakes into a different shallow bowl, mix to combine, set aside. Dip each tender into egg, then coat with panko breadcrumbs. Set aside.
  • Place tenders into heated oil in the frying skillet. Don't overcrowd the skillet, cook in batches (I did 4-5 each batch). Fry for 3-4 minutes on the first side, when browned flip to other side, cook 2-3 minutes or until browned. Remove from skillet and set on a paper towel lined plate. Repeat for all tenders.
