Chicken Tenders Recipe
ChefTalk.com Top Picks
Firstly, welcome to Chef Talk!
Secondly I googled and was surprised to see only one left in Houston, Texas but they have a nice chain of places in other states.
Personally have never eaten there (sooo many places to choose from in that area) so had to search for a description (sadly lacking) and found one with a pix attached http://www.yelp.com/biz_photos/houstons-restaurant-irvine-3?select=d_w37Q3-X8NvhFz-iYkUmw
Not on the regular menu (an odd thing for a special off the menu offering IMO) I suppose the BOH is using the salad tenders and breading before tossing into the fry basket with the FF's?
The crust is described as a tempura and panko breading.... what sort of flavor profile are you getting?
Salty, spicy, sweet?
One last thing....have you thought to ask?
Being a chain they are prolly using a seasoned batter packet (from another dish as these are off menu) and rehydrating...could be the tenders are coming in preseasoned as well altho for sure there will be a list of ingredients on the boxes.
If your waitstaff plays coy on this topic, get to know the bartender.
I did all sorts of special favors for my regular customers including cooking tips.
I stared at my use of the phrase "special favors" for a good 10 min before I hit send.
Left myself open for some rude comments but whatcha gonna do.....
LMAO! I didn't put that together.
Yep....I'm definitely rooting for you now! lol.
Remember back in the day when the attnys and judges would check out for lunch and never return to their offices?
Then along about 7 pm their assistants and secretaries would show up dressed for dinner and a club?
I tended bar at a "professional men's club" (no not that kind lol) from 11 am till they all left... was the only time in my life I only worked one job (maybe a few events but other than that...nada) and could go home and do the mom thing.
I did a LOT of favors for those guys....private parties at classy homes and fancy hotels.
Choosing gifts and having flowers delivered ... booking long weekends at out of the way B&Bs....
How does the song go...."those were the days my friend we thought they'd never end" damn now I am melancholy...
Funny thing..... a couple of the lawyers formed a petro chem support business.
My DH "the fisherman" works for them and thinks it odd that his wife is the only dependent who gets free health insurance ;-)
Those guys are still buying my silence.....
The Flying Chicken Fingers are like everything else, the best.
The batter is best described as a thin Tempura batter that is perfectly crunchy. I too want the recipe solely for home use. They guard their recipes well. Though a business executive, I have thought of getting a job there but I would have to start out washing dishes. If ANYONE knows the secret please let me know too.
