Citrus Chicken Tenders


Exceptionally moist fried chicken with an irresistible balance of flavor in the marinade from the lemon, lime, and orange juices and the rich beer.


1. In medium bowl whisk egg, lime juice, lemon juice, orange juice, beer, and soda. Season with salt and pepper. Add chicken and marinate in the refrigerator for two hours.
2. Place bread crumbs in a shallow dish. Working with one strip at a time, remove chicken from marinade and dredge in bread crumbs.
3. Heat oil in a small saucepan. When oil is hot, add chicken and fry until golden brown, about two minutes.


Make sure that your chicken strips are thin enough so that they will cook in two to three minutes. Over-frying will cause your chicken tenders to lose their citrusy taste.
