Lemon Glazed Chicken Tenders

I usually don't prefer deep fried things but sometimes even I can't say no to stuff because it makes me curious. Curiosity kills my weight watch routine just like it kills the cat.

I was surfing through a blog and I found this delicious recipe. Where you make the simple chicken tenders but you also make an Asian style dressing with it made up of a different mix of sweet and salty ingredients.

This recipe can be named in any way but I like to call it Lemon Glazed Chicken Tenders. Yes it sounds like a really long Arabic name.


Ingredients:

1 kilogram of boneless chicken breasts cut into strips

1 cup of all purpose flour

1 cup of buttermilk(easy to prepare and I will tell you before i start the actual recipe)

1 cup vegetable oil

salt and pepper to taste

For the GLAZE:(I don't know but I like to scream GLAZE!!!!)

1/2 cup honey

1/3 cup of soy sauce

1/4 cup pineapple juice

1/4 cup brown sugar

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon garlic paste






Now comes the question "WHAT THE HELL IS BUTTERMILK AND HOW DO WE MAKE IT?"

Simple, take a bowl, pour the milk in the bowl, add one small lemon juice/1 tablespoon vinegar in it and look at the cup for 5 to 10 minutes.

While looking at the cup think about your life. Think about the things you've done, the things you should have done, the things you should haven't done, did you do anything for others or did you just wasted your life on your own meaningless desires.

After a lot of thinking you'll get your buttermilk and probably some other eye opening answers about your life.

Now you need to make the glaze first.

For that you combine garlic paste, honey, pineapple juice, brown sugar, apple cider vinegar, black pepper, soy sauce and olive oil in a non stick pan.

Make it boil and then cook it for 10-12 minutes on low heat or until it thickens to a caramelized liquid.









Now you marinate your chicken by putting salt and pepper on it according to your taste. Let it marinate and you meanwhile heat a cup of vegetable oil in a deep pan on medium high heat.








Now put the flour in a wide pan and coat the chicken first in the flour, dip it in the buttermilk and again give it a final coat in the flour. This will complete your coating and you can start frying nowin batches one by one.









Fry till dark brown and then take it out on a plate covered with paper towels. Pour the GLAZE on it and its ready to serve.







Somethings are really hard to decorate like this one but I tried my best DON'T JUDGE or I can do nothing about your way of thinking.

Join your hands together for Lemon Glazed Chicken Tenders.
