Hot Honey Chicken Tenders

If you love finger foods, then you need to make these hot honey chicken tenders! Chicken tenderloins coated in buttermilk, flour, then fried to perfection and smothered in sauce.

I love easy chicken recipes like air fryer chicken wings but some days I crave regular deep-fried chicken tenders. These hot honey chicken tenders are crispy, juicy, and taste so good. They’re sweet with just a hint of spice. I like to serve them with 4 cheese mac and cheese, coleslaw, and blue cheese dressing.

Ingredient Notes

Chicken – I used chicken tenderloins but feel free to use chicken breasts sliced into long strips.

Hot Sauce – Use your favorite spicy hot sauce. I personally like Cholula hot sauce for this recipe.

Buttermilk – Thick and store-bought buttermilk is best.

Spices – I used a combination of garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, paprika, salt, and pepper. Feel free to use Cajun seasoning, chipotle seasoning, or your favorite chicken rub instead.
