Honey Garlic Crunch Chicken Tenders

Chicken Tenders

3 chicken breasts, sliced into 5 – 6 slices each
2 c flour
1/2 c panko bread crumbs
1/2 t garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1 t paprika
1/2 t seasoning salt
1/2 t black pepper
3 eggs
3 T water
1 1/2 T oil
oil for frying
green onions

Preheat oil to 375 F. In a bowl combine flour, Panko bread crumbs, and seasonings. Set aside. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, water and oil. Working with half of the flour mix at a time dip each piece of chicken in the egg mix and then the flour. Dip it into the egg a second time and then the flour again to double coat it. Gently press the flour into the chicken. Shake off any excess. Place on a wire rack and continue until all chicken is coated. Fry chicken in small batches until crispy and cooked through, about 5 – 6 min. Drain on paper towels. Place cooked chicken in a large bowl, pour warm sauce over and toss well to coat. Top with green onions if desired and serve immediately. Note: When working with the flour mix, working with just half at a time worked best. This kept the flour from getting clumped or wet.

Sauce

1/2 c honey
4 T soy sauce
4 large garlic cloves, crushed
1 T finely diced ginger
1/2 t chili flakes
1/3 c water

Combine ingredients in a small pan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer about 15 min.
