What are chicken tenders?
Chicken tenders have a few different names. We have always called them chicken strips but they can also be called chicken fingers.
Chicken tenderloins are a small piece of meat that is attached to the underside of the chicken breast. They are usually breaded and deep fried. The Kitchn has a great article called What the Heck Is a Chicken Tenderloin.
We actually pan fry our homemade chicken tenders and we use the whole boneless skinless chicken breast cut into thin strips. So I suppose that is why we call them chicken strips, because they aren’t actually all tenderloin.
Here is our family favorite recipe!
We dredge them through egg and then a simply seasoned flour mixture and pan fry them in canola oil.
What goes with chicken tenders?

And no good comfort food dinner is complete without a bread, so I have included a few of those in this post.
