Kelly Clarkson Cooks With John Legend!
Kelly launched season two of her daytime talk show on September 21 with John legend, who stepped into the show’s kitchen to make his Chicken Tenders!
As soon as the show aired, Kelly’s great digital team shared the recipe!
You know what that meant…
Time To Make John’s Chicken Tenders!
I will use any excuse to cook something new, and since it’s “Pumpkin Spice” season, I decided to make John Legend’s chicken tenders, substituting the cayenne pepper with October’s favorite new spice mix!
Here are the ingredients for the marinade – I have to admit that I NEVER cook with Buttermilk, so this was going to be interesting…
So, I poured the required amount of Buttermilk and the Garlic Salt into a bowl, then added my secret ingredient for Halloween season: some Pumpkin Spice seasoning…
I sliced the chicken breast into long strips, stirred the seasonings into the buttermilk, and then laid the chicken down in the marinade so it could soak up the flavors for a few hours…
Next, I put out my ingredients for the batter…as you can see, it’s flour, baking powder, olive oil, some more Pumpkin Spice seasoning and a little more Buttermilk:
I mixed all of the dry ingredients together well, then poured in the quarter cup of Buttermilk…it didn’t seem like much, but it did give the flour a bit of a flakiness:
Put the recommended amount of oil in your frying pan and turn it on to medium high.
Now, time to grab the marinated chicken and bread it:
Now, if you wonder if I’m doing it right – I have proof: here is the clip form Kelly’s show where John breads his tenders!
Well, if he could do it, so could I!
Here you go:
Now that the chicken is in the frying pan, it’s just a matter of letting each side cook 5-6 minutes:
Nothing sounds better than something frying in a frying pan…need proof?
Once done, take them out and lay them on a plate, where their glistening goldenness is just waiting for you to enjoy!
And that’s it! Look, I acknowledge this is an easy recipe to make, but they are fun, you can make them with your kids, and let’s be honest, breaded and fried ANYTHING is delicious!
Thanks to John Legend and Kelly Clarkson for sharing this terrific recipe, and if you want to “Pumpkin Spice” it, it’s easy!
I love watching the cooking segments on Kelly’s show, and they put together a hilarious collection of some of her best cooking “fails”, with Chance The Rapper, Oscar-winning Actress Kathy Bates, Joel McHale, Nick Jonas and Jillian Bell among others…click to see them here!
For someone who doesn’t even like the flavor of Pumpkin Spice much, I will admit I’ve been a bit obsessed with it this Halloween season:
I got a LOT of comments about this recipe, but I swear by it: a “Pumpkin Spice And Cheddar Cheese Bread!”
