Tips and Tricks:
- I serve this with Honey Mustard or Pepper Jelly Sauce. Follow my links for each recipe.
- You can also use this recipe for nuggets. Simply cut the tenders into inch long pieces. Nuggets will only need about 4 minutes total to cook.
- The confectioners’ sugar is the SECRET ingredient for this recipe. You won’t taste that it is there, but you’ll miss it if you leave it out.
