Chicken tenders are certainly everyone's favorite snack to go for. They are super quick to make and easy to carry in tiffin and lunch boxes. So, I would highly recommend these to all the moms out there. There are three little secrets in this recipe that will give the yummiest chicken fingers you would have ever tried.
Firstly, there is this chicken marinade, which is mixed with chicken, and it infuses a luscious taste into its meat. This is the crusty seasoned coating over the chicken and finally the mayonnaise sauce. This sauce is good to serve with a number of recipes, especially snacks, so I would recommend trying it and keeping it ready in your refrigerator.
