Southern Fried Chicken Tenders with Honey Lime Dipping Sauce

I don’t know about you ladies, but most of my dinner meals typical start with me tidying up the kitchen. The sink and counters are the central space for getting meals cooked and I like them to be clear before I start cooking.

If dinner is not pre-cooked during our meal prep on Sunday, I usually start cooking around noon. By this time, the sink has a few dishes in it from breakfast.
I load the dishwasher safe stuff and hand wash the others.

Once the dishes are washed I quickly wipe the counters and get started on dinner. Getting my dishes and counters clean is way easier now that I’ve stocked up on Scotch-Brite® Scrubbing Dish Cloths
                      
They have tiny scrubbing dots on one side that makes srubbbing tough stains easier. The scrubbing dots are tough enough to remove food, but do not scratch surfaces like my chrome faucet. The other side of the dish cloth is soft and perfect for washing easy dishes and counters.

When my kitchen is clean I feel more inspired to cook. For dinner today I’m making Crispy Southern Fried Chicken Tenders and a Lime Honey BBQ dipping sauce.

Before I begin cooking, I set up both sinks filled 1/3 the way with hot soapy water. One side is for wiping surfaces and the other for soaking dishes. As I prep, I can wipe the counters or place dishes in the hot water to soak. I hope y’all are taking notes because managing a kitchen all day every day can become stressful without a strategy. I let dishes soak while I’m getting the food going to make them easier to clean after cooking.

To make my Crispy Southern Fried Chicken Tenders and a Honey Lime dipping sauce you’ll need the following ingredients.

At this point I move my coated chicken over to the stove area and turn my pot of cooking oil on medium heat. While that heats up, I wash my hands, the dishes and wipe the counter.

    4. Next, I fry the strips on each side for about 7 minutes until golden brown. Once they are cooked, I transfer them to a plate with a paper towel to cool. While they cool I make a quick dipping sauce.
