Turkey Tenders!

My kids LOVE chicken nuggets and chicken tenders, and while I do make those for them a lot, I sometimes like to change it up a bit and use Turkey instead.

They can't really tell the difference and it's cheaper than the chicken. What's not to like right?

TURKEY TENDERS

2 lbs turkey breast cutlets
flour
salt and pepper
garlic powder
milk
vegetable oil

In a big ziploc bag, mix the flour, salt and pepper and garlic powder. Shake to mix well.

Cut the breast cutlets into strips.

Pour some milk into a medium bowl. You don't need a lot, just about a cup or so, if you need more you can always add. Dip the strips into the milk and then dump them into the flour mixture.

Close the bag and shake it up well to coat every side.

Fry in vegetable oil about 3 or 4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.

Serve with Ranch dressing or Honey Mustard or whatever your family prefers.

My favorite, Honey Mustard....YUM!

Kids prefer the Ranch dressing, which is also really good.

  7. These look so delicious! I'm going to have to make these sometime this week. My husband loves chicken strips, those nasty deep fried things you pick up at drive-thrus. Thanks!
