Ingredients

1kg chicken tenderloins

200g plain flour

3 eggs

300ml milk or buttermilk

400g fine breadcrumbs or Japanese panko

1 tbsp finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 tsp sea salt

100ml vegetable oil

100g plum sauce

Method

1. Remove any sinews from the chicken. Set out three bowls in order to coat the chicken. Place the flour in first. Whisk the eggs and milk together in the second. Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley and sea salt together in the third.

2. Coat each piece of chicken on all sides, first in the flour, then in the egg wash, then in the crumbs.

3. Heat the oil in a heavy-based fry pan and cook the chicken on both sides until golden and cooked through. Drain on paper towel, and serve with plum sauce for dipping.

  • Just tried this recipe - talk about a disaster! The quantities were probably about 50percent too much (used Panko crumbs). The cooking was a lesson in how to burn crumbs and not cook chicken (even turning the heat down - and anyway when the recipe says heat the oil - at what temperature? I would have been better to go to KFC and buy a bunch of chicken strips! Not an easy recipe at all!

  • Seems to me that harold just can't cook. Rochelle I would substitute sweet chilli sauce if I didn't like plum. or a honey mustard mix.
