This copycat recipe is from Top Secret Recipes. Chili's chicken crispers are chicken fingers with a light and airy batter, usually served with TSR Version of Chili's Honey Mustard Dressing by Todd Wilbur. This serves 4 as an appetizer or 2 as an entree.
- Heat shortening or oil in fryer to 350 degrees F.
- Combine beaten egg, milk, chicken broth, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk for about 30 seconds to dissolve salt. Whisk in 1 cup self rising flour. Let the batter sit for 5 minutes.
- Coat each piece of chicken with dry flour, and then dunk the chicken into the batter. Let a little batter drip off the chicken and lower it into the hot oil. Fry for 7 to 9 minutes.
- Repeat with the remaining chicken, frying 3 to 4 tenderloins at a time. Drain fried chicken strips on paper towels and serve with honey mustard dressing.
