Chicken tenders to serve with a zingy sauce

Preparation Time

30 minutes

Cooking Time

15 minutes




These crusted chicken fillets served with a zingy sauce would make the perfect afters-chool snack. They are made with soft, boneless chicken strips. Unlike the traditional breadcrumb coating, the strips are rolled in cheese crackers before frying to give it a unique flavour.


500 gm boneless chicken

½ cup beaten plain yoghurt

¼ tsp salt

2 cups of crushed Monaco biscuit (or any cheese flavoured cracker)

Flavourless oil for frying as needed


Marinate the chicken with curd and salt for a minimum of 15 minutes

Drain out the excess marinade

Coat the chicken in crushed Monaco biscuits and fry till golden brown

Alternatively, you can bake it at 200 C for 15 mins (turning once mid way)
