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.
