vegetable oil for frying

1 (7.6 ounce) package
garlic flavored instant mashed potatoes
ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds
I made this and it turned out great. Also. my own little twist on 2nd batch--I deep fried and instead of potato flakes I used crushed corn flakes, also good.
Just tried these for the first time, they are possibly the best chicken tenders I have ever made. I used "Idahoan Roasted Garlic" mashed potato mix which is better tasting than many of the others. I ended up having enough to cover two lbs of meat, but they are so good that was fine with me. Next time I will cut the salt back to 1 & 1/2 teaspoon, but other than that I love these! Thank you for posting. :-)
PS I used a light olive oil, worked great.
**Update, just made for second time. Added 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder & 1/4 cup parmesan cheese to the flakes. They were even better. After removing chicken, you can pour the left over milk in the frying pan, add flour & make gravy. Yum.
These turned out FANTASTIC! Everyone in my house loved it. I actually didn't use garlic flavored. I just used buttery flavored instant mashed potato packets. It was good without all the garlic in my opinion. They were crunchy, juicy, and perfect!
I made this and it was delicious. I didn't have packaged mashed potatoes, so I used a cup of potato flakes and added a tablespoon of garlic and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. I also double breaded by dipping in flour before the milk mixture. I used just 1 cup of milk and while a lot was left over, it made the drenching easier. I might use a bit less next time, but not much.
This recipe interests me because of my diet. I don't combine grain products with meat. This means I never make crusted chicken bakes. However, potato flakes are not grain! I'm looking forward to using this idea in more recipes.
Wish I could give this more stars. It deserves at least ten because of how easy it is. I followed the recipe exactly and my whole family loved it. Will be making this many times in the future. Next time I think I will use only one cup of milk with the egg as I had a ton of milk left over. Thanks for a really great recipe. Mary Jane
This was great! I've made this twice now & the family LOVED it. I used only 1/2 package of flakes each time & it was more than enough. 1 1/2 c milk was also more than necessary if u don't want to waste milk. The second time I forgot to add the egg & it still came out good. Adding additional spices to the flake mix is also a possibility, depending on your taste, but by no means necessary. Thanks! We will continue to enjoy this recipe!
Theses were pretty good...a quick and easy snack to make!
