Step 1

Coarsely grind or crush the two cereals and set in a shallow dish.

In a second shallow dish, beat the egg with milk.

Stir together the flour, onion and garlic powders and black pepper; set aside. Dip the chicken pieces in the seasoned flour and coat well; shake off the excess flour.

Dip in the egg wash, coating well, then dip in the cereal mixture, coating well.

Heat oil in a large heavy skillet. Drop coated chicken tenders carefully in the hot oil and cook until golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes per side.

Remove tenders to a paper towel lined plate to drain excess oil. Serve hot.
