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.
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.
