 Ingredients List

  • Vegetable or canola oil for frying
  • 1 1/2 lbs. chicken tenderloins
  • 1/2 c. buttermilk
  • 1/4 c. hot sauce (I like Frank”™s Red Hot)
  • 3/4 c. self-rising flour
  • 1/2 tsp. McCormick”™s Chipotle Chile Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper


In a large, heavy pot, heat oil to 350 degrees.

Prepare chicken by trimming off any little tendons that might be unpleasant to eat.

In a shallow dish, mix buttermilk and hot sauce. Whisk gently.

In a separate shallow dish, combine self-rising flour, Chipotle Chili Pepper, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.

Dunk chicken in buttermilk mixture allowing excess to drip off and then dredge in flour mixture.* Repeat with remaining chicken pieces.

Once the oil reaches 350 degrees, drop 4-5 pieces of chicken into the pan at a time. Cook until a light golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Drain on paper towel and serve immediately.
