Savory Fried Chicken Tenders Crispy & Soft with the Egg White Coating

Savory Fried Chicken Tenders Crispy & Soft with the Egg White Coating

The egg whites give a crispy yet tender texture. The fragrant sesame adds flavor to plain chicken tenders!
Great as an appetizer or packed in bento lunch boxes.

Ingredients

Chicken tenders
2
Salt and pepper
to taste
Egg white
1
Katakuriko
to taste
Sesame seeds
to taste
Oil for deep frying
as needed
Lemon, if you have
1/8
Saran wrap
Rolling pin or meat hammer

Steps

1. Remove the sinews from the chicken and cut into bite-sized pieces.
2. Cover your cutting board or kitchen counter top as well as the rolling pin with plastic wrap to keep them from getting dirty. Place the chicken on the board/counter top and lightly pound with the rolling pin to flatten.
3. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, then rub in the egg white. Lightly sprinkle with katakuriko.
4. Add plenty of sesame and quickly fry in oil at 160-170℃ and it's done.
5. I used a frozen egg white that I let it defrost at room temperature.
6. Enjoy it piping hot. Serve with a squeeze of lemon juice! I recommend eating this with alcohol.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had an egg white left over, so I used it as coating the chicken.
By pounding and flatting out the meat, it'll become tender.
