12 chicken tenderloins

Honey Chipotle Sauce

2/3 c honey
1/4 c water
1/4 c ketchup
1 T white vinegar
2 t ground chipotle chile pepper ( McCormick makes a powder)
1/2 t salt

Make honey-chipotle sauce by combining all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat.

Batter

1 egg, beaten
1/2 c whole milk
1/2 c chicken broth
1 1/2 t salt
1/4 t black pepper
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t garlic powder
3/4 c flour

Heat shortening or oil in fryer or Dutch oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together all ingredients for the batter, excluding flour, in a shallow bowl for at least 30 seconds. Whisk in the flour.

Breading

1 1/2 c flour
1 1/2 t salt
3/4 t paprika
1/2 t black pepper
1/2 t garlic powder

Combining all ingredients in another shallow bowl or pie pan. When you are ready to fry the chicken, dip each piece of chicken into the batter. Lift the chicken out of the batter and let some of the excess drip off. Toss the chicken into the dry breading and coat completely. Repeat with 2 – 3 other pieces. Carefully drop the breaded chicken into the hot oil and fry for 4 min or until golden brown. Remove chicken from oil and allow to drain on paper towels. Repeat until all the chicken tenders have been cooked. When all the chicken tenders are done, drop them into a large glass or metal bowl. Pour the sauce over the top, and toss gently until all the chicken tenders are coated with sauce.
