Chicken tenders, that are also known as chicken fingers, are strips of chicken pieces that have been marinated and dipped in a mixture and fried crisp. The mixture in question here can be crushed cornflakes or oats. We are going with the latter and using crushed oats to add not just a crunch but an underlying flavour to the outside layer as well. All you need are some chicken breasts, simple Indian spices, and some crushed oats. These chicken tenders will be ready in minutes with this easy recipe here.
