Recipe Notes

  • Oven-Baked or Air-Fried? I examined this recipe within the oven and the air fryer and so they each turned out nice! I barely choose the air fryer as a result of it will get them a bit crispier all the way in which round, in order that’s my most popular methodology. Nevertheless, in the event you don’t have an air fryer don’t fret, your oven will nonetheless do an excellent job on these.
  • Do I have to pre-heat my air fryer? I’ve seen a lot of combined details about this. Some sources say you completely should pre-heat your air fryer and a few say you needn’t trouble. I believe it in all probability is determined by the model of air fryer you personal, so you might need to test your guide. I’ve a COSORI model air fryer and don’t pre-heat for this recipe. I see that Philips model additionally says you don’t have to pre-heat. If you happen to’re unsure about your explicit mannequin, be at liberty to simply run it for a couple of minutes earlier than you add the rooster tenders to make sure.
  • Mustard: You should use your favourite sort of mustard on this recipe! I used yellow mustard (I love yellow mustard), however be at liberty to make use of Dijon or brown mustard if that’s what you favor or have available. If you happen to’d like a stronger mustard taste you may as well exchange one tablespoon of the Greek yogurt with a further tablespoon of mustard.
  • Bread Crumbs: I like utilizing cornflake crumbs as a result of they add a little bit of sweetness and taste with the crunch and style nice with honey mustard. Cornflake crumbs are offered in shops already in crumb type, so there’s no have to crush your individual! Look by the opposite breadcrumbs. If you happen to’d prefer to substitute panko or common bread crumbs that ought to work simply fantastic.

Serving Dimension

I do know individuals will need to know “what number of rooster tenders are in a serving?” I made a decision to publish the serving measurement by weight, as a result of whether or not you purchase rooster tenderloins pre-cut or minimize your individual tenders from rooster breasts, the scale of every tender could range. This recipe makes use of 20 ounces of uncooked rooster strips and for me this was 12 tenders. When breaded and cooked, the completed tenders weighed slightly over 21 ounces complete, so every serving was about 5.25 ounces by weight. For me, this was three tenders every. In case your rooster strips are bigger or smaller the quantity per serving could range.

Rooster Tenders

Uncooked rooster tenderloins are offered within the meat part of most grocery shops, so undoubtedly be at liberty to simply seize these for this recipe. I typically purchase massive bulk packs of boneless, skinless rooster breasts at my grocery retailer after which use kitchen shears to trim them down into the sizes and shapes I exploit continuously in recipes. It’s cheaper to purchase the breasts in bulk and since I exploit rooster breasts quite a bit in my recipes it is smart for me! I usually minimize the massive rooster breasts into both 5-6 ounce cutlets or into strips like those used on this recipe (between 1.5-1.8 ounces every). Something rooster that’s minimize off to make these I then minimize into small chunks to make rooster bites. It’s simple to weigh out 1 lb or extra of rooster chunks or tenders and a few 5 oz cutlets and freeze them for later in quart measurement freezer luggage. That means, I at all times have some cutlets, tenders, and rooster bites available to make use of in my recipes!
