Low Sodium Fried Chicken Tenders RecipeBy sodiumoptionalI don't recommend eating fried food too often but every once in a while it's a nice treat. I like to think that if I'm going to eat fried food, I would rather fry my own in nice clean oil. When at a restaurant you have no idea how gross their frying oil is, or what was fried in it before. Plus chefs are almost programmed to salt everything that comes out of a fryolator. I know this because I use to be a chef for many years before my kidney disease took its final toll on me. This low sodium chicken tender recipe involves deep frying, so make sure to have a plate with paper towels on it off to the side to drain the chicken once it comes out of the hot oil. Let me know what you think in the comments below.
