what up guys and welcome back to the fit man could kitchen for today’s quick email prep recipe were actually got something in mind for gameday and also for all this hoopla that is literally taken over the internet we are making some spicy parmesan chicken tenders accompanied with an amazing salad who has the best chicken sandwich is the chick-fil-a or Popeyes or is it AFC I’ll tell you what I’m actually pretty partial to Popeyes because I grew up on that type of chicken and that that spicy chicken tenders and that spicy chicken is actually pretty hitting ah plus they have a better biscuit so there’s that so today in the kitchen I’m going to show you an easy way to whip up some spicy parmesan crusted chicken tenders and we’re gonna pair that with a salad and yes of course because I cannot resist the urge I will go ahead and put together a chicken sandwich and I’m gonna let somebody here in the studio taste it so that we can decide if at least come somewhat close to what KFC chick-fil-a and Popeyes are putting out all right guys if you’re ready to have some fun today in the kitchen then let’s get started all right today I’m gonna make ya’ll laugh for real this is a really funny joke can anyone tell me why did mozart hate chickens you get because all the chickens ever say was Bock Bock Bock Bock Bock [Music] ah you are laughing at it you’re laughing dude I don’t care what y’all say it was funny let’s get on to the video all right so the first thing we’re gonna do is prep our chickens tinder so and I get some chicken tenders if you don’t have two contenders you can just get some chicken breasts and then slice them into pieces just like this so that way they resemble some tenders and grab yourself a receivable plastic bag or you can off to do this in one large bowl I think it’s easier to do it this way I have the chicken to the bag and then you just add in all the personality we’re gonna add just a little bit of avocado oil it’ll help out with the marinade add some dried rosemary some smoked paprika and if you can stand the heat just a little bit of cayenne get out all the air seal the bag it’s easier again to do this inside of the bowl but I like to do it because then you can kind of mix and mash it and then you’re finished let this marinate in the fridge for about 20 minutes but if you can’t I’ll do this overnight so that way the flavors really set in and after about 30 minutes now the chicken is raised to be deep-fried and battered or fried in our case so here I’ve got some crumbs now these are gluten free chickpea crumbs but if you can’t get these than just use some panko to our crumbs we’re gonna add in some parmesan and just use your fingers to mix it up take some eggs and quickly whisk the eggs together and if you’re trying to really watch your calories then you could just use some egg white and if you want to go egg list and you can also just use some Dijon mustard and this is just some fine almond flour for a gluten-free option all right so whip open your bag now we don’t want the chicken sopping wet so if it’s a little bit drippy than you need to go ahead and Pat it dry this is fine just like this we’re gonna put it into the almond flour to a quick Drudge of this add it to our egg mixture just do a really quick dip and then put this and neatly into the bread crumb Parmesan mix and just coat it beautiful take this add it to your air fryer basket and then repeat for the entire batch now once you finally got them all covered you’re gonna do one quick spray with a little bit of avocado oil just to get a nice crispy coating on the outside when they airfryer and then we’re gonna set these into our air fryer for about 10 to 15 minutes at 420 so while the chicken tenders are finishing up in the air fryer we’re gonna go ahead and prep the salad I got some really nice vibrant peppery arugula if you like a fan of that then just use some extremes so let’s make our dressing so I’m gonna add in just a little bit of olive oil a little dab of some Dijon mustard maybe two dabs there we go some fresh lemon squeeze that in and then if you’re a fan of it some apple cider vinegar or you can use some white vinegar I’m not the biggest fan of vinegar so I’m gonna be use this very sparingly that’s just enough for me and then a pinch of some sea salt and some pepper a little bit more pepper yeah give this a good whisk and then to our salad we’re gonna add in some freshly chopped cucumber drizzle in this beautiful dressing really light and then just toss everything together now let’s bring everything together these look amazing you hear that crispy coating mm-hmm and a pop of color and then if you can stand it sprinkle on a little bit more heat and some red pepper and you’re done easy parmesan crispy chicken tenders mmm so good now add in our salad just a bunch of beautiful green right here I bet you if you made chicken salad like this it’s hearty everybody will start eating some chicken salad and don’t waste that vinaigrette so this drizzle in the last bit yeah don’t waste it just a few sprinkles of some shaved parmesan then add in your chicken tenders grab your favorite condiment from the fridge I like to have this little barbecue sauce with my chicken tenders you could use some there’s no mustard and now the most important part of this entire video the taste test we’re gonna be super silent because I want to get this crunch I want you to hit his crutch oh my god I’ve got a little bit of a kick to it get a really nice smoky flavor because of the smoke will free get in there oh it’s actually just right and if you’re not a fan of salad which I’m not sure why not you can also turn this into an epic chicken sandwich so we’re gonna throw our hat in the ring here and see if this can compete I begin to the Popeyes and chick-fil-a so I’ve got some lettuce tomatoes onions and some pickles I’m gonna use a little bit of barbecue sauce on mine only thing that’s missing now is that our crispy chicken tenders let’s get a really nice one boom right there yeah buddy then just add the top button all right so great question who’s gonna taste this on camera Jesse don’t then turned and uh don’t under done I did then under done and then ten that’s the price is right you wanna come down you know you watch and now oh my gosh this just looks like a work of art let me just take a picture of you eating this because men feel like I’m messing up Picasa okay here we go ah oh let’s it’s dripping – oh my goodness good is it good oh wow I think those are regular teeth marks though like you got
