This is a great recipe! The only thing I did different was pre-season the chicken tenders heavily front and back with onion powder, salt (light), little pepper (lightly), and garlic powder...with exception to salt and pepper. I probably went heavier on parm cheese and bread crumbs...that is just what I like. I do this no matter what the recipe calls for, because it always gives that added flavor boost and keeps it from being bland. Thank you Crystal for sharing this recipe, it is different from most breaded chicken recipes, delicious, and easy to make!!

All the flavor of those wonderful spices and seasoning were lost! Maybe it would help to skip the flour and just apply the spices and seasonings directly to the chicken, dip in buttermilk, and then in the seasoned crumbs/cheese mixture. Has potential, but needs tweaking.
