Garlic Parmesan Crispy Chicken Tenders have a secret ingredient to make them the crispiest chicken tenders, with a creamy garlic parm sauce for dipping!

Hey, guys!! I have an amazing recipe for the crispiest chicken tenders seasoned with garlic and parmesan cheese, yum!

I have avoided making chicken tenders in the past because the breading is never quite right. It gets soggy or just falls right off. I gave up!

Recently, I discovered the secret ingredient to the crispiest chicken tenders ever – Argo® Corn Starch! It makes the best chicken tenders that are soo crispy!

I first discovered this when I coated some chicken pieces in Argo® Corn Starch to make sweet and sour chicken. I loved how crispy the chicken got and the flavor was fabulous!

These tenders came out perfectly with a great garlic flavor and a crispy, airy crust. I swear I am going to be breading all my chicken in Argo® Corn Starch​ from now on! Argo® Corn Starch is my favorite to use with over 100 years of quality and trust over multiple generations. I’s what my grandma always taught me to use.

There are many uses for corn starch. I already keep plenty of Argo® Corn Starch on hand for thickening sauces and making gravy, so I am thrilled to find out I can use it to make the crispiest chicken. It is so easy and light. You could use it to make crispy chicken in the oven, pan fried or even air fried. Argo® Corn Starch makes your fried chicken better! Just add Argo® Corn Starch starch to your batter to get the perfect crispy coating.

I marinated the chicken strips in buttermilk, garlic and egg whites for a bit before tossing them in the Argo® Corn Starch, garlic salt, pepper and some parmesan cheese.

You can get the crispiest chicken using Argo® Corn Starch.​ The corn starch gives a light coating that fries up golden and crisp. The garlic flavor is just the right amount, and I serve it with a delicious garlic parmesan dipping sauce.

This is a dinner that even my picky eaters love. It doesn’t take any time to whip up, and I can have it ready and on the table for all my boys in no time! We serve a little mac and cheese and broccoli on the side and everyone is happy! I love dinners that the whole family likes; it makes my life easier lol.

Can I use shredded parmesan?

I use grated, the stuff in can lol. I do not know how shredded would do. It might burn before the chicken is cooked through.

Will this work on bone in chicken?

Yes!! Argo® Corn Starch will definitely make the crispiest fried chicken on the bone as well!

I don’t have buttermilk. What should I do?

You can add a little splash of vinegar or lemon juice to your regular milk to make buttermilk, or you can just simply use whatever milk you have on hand.

Can I air fry these Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders?

Of course!! Spritz them with a little oil and they will crisp up beautifully in the air fryer.

You have got to make these Garlic Parmesan Chicken Tenders for your family! They will be asking you to put them on the weekly menu for sure!

Once you make these and you taste how crispy they are, you will be coating all your chicken in Argo® Corn Starch and making the crispiest fried chicken, chicken tenders and chicken nuggets.

So try these out for yourself, make an amazing dinner that will impress your family and have your picky eaters smiling.

    This look really, really good. I’ve been meaning to make some homemade chicken strips but it just never happens. Saving this for the next time it comes up.

    Starred to make this and realized I didn’t have time to marinate for 4 hours. Is there a minimum time?

      You could skip the marinating and it wouldn’t be a big deal at all, Ill add in that it is optional.

Leave me your lovely thoughts!
