- 4-6 servings
- 3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 5 eggs, whisked
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 cups panko bread crumbs
- ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ cup Louisiana hot sauce
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- ½ teaspoon cracked white pepper
- 6 cups canola oil
Cut each chicken breast in thirds, then slightly pound each piece with a meat tenderizer to about ½-inch thick and set aside.
Place flour, egg and panko in three separate bowls.
Whisk together Worcestershire, hot sauce, salt and white pepper; reserve as "hot" dipping sauce.
Heat oil in an 8-quart stockpot or deep fryer over medium to medium-high heat. Sprinkle a few breadcrumbs in the oil to test for readiness (oil is ready when breadcrumbs quickly bubble and float to top). While oil heats, begin breading the chicken.
Coat each piece of chicken breast in flour, shake loose excess, then dip in egg and finally in panko. Deep-fry in oil until chicken tenders begin to float and turn golden brown. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel-lined sheet pan.
Serve with hot sauce and cool ranch dressing and Beer-Battered Onion Rings.
