Ingredients:

For the Crispy Chicken Tenders:

  • 1.5 lbs chicken breast, cut into small, thin tenders (chicken tenderloin works well)
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

For the Wet Batter:

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

For the Ranch Sauce:

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

Instructions:

For the Ranch Sauce:

  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, buttermilk, yellow mustard, salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Mix well to create a zesty ranch sauce. Set it aside.

For the Crispy Chicken Tenders:

  1. In a shallow and wide bowl, add all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking powder, paprika, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper. Whisk the dry ingredients together and set aside.
  2. In a deep bowl, prepare the wet batter by adding buttermilk, salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder. Whisk the wet ingredients until fully combined.
  3. Now, create a flaky texture by adding 3 tablespoons of the wet batter into the dry ingredients. Mix it around with your fingers or a fork.
  4. Begin the breading process: Dip each chicken tender/strip first into the wet batter, making sure it’s fully coated. Then, place it into the dry mixture, ensuring an even coating. Repeat this process for a double coating, ending with another dip into the dry mixture. Let any excess wet or dry coating drip off the chicken tenders.
  5. Once all the tenders are perfectly breaded, allow them to rest for 10 minutes. This helps the coating adhere well during frying.
  6. Heat about 1.5 to 2 inches of oil in a frying pan to approximately 365°F (185°C). Avoid overcrowding the pan, and fry the chicken tenders in two batches if necessary. Fry until they turn a beautiful golden brown all around, which should take about 7-8 minutes. Rotate the tenders as needed to ensure even browning.
  7. Carefully transfer the crispy chicken tenders to a paper towel to drain any excess oil.

Wrapping It Up: Once your chicken tenders are perfectly crispy, simply place them in a warm tortilla. Drizzle generously with your homemade ranch sauce. Fold the tortilla around the chicken tenders, and you’re ready to enjoy a delicious, homemade snack wrap that’s better than the fast-food version. Satisfy your cravings with this mouthwatering delight! 🌯🍗😋
