Chicken Tenders and Cream Gravy

The hubby made dinner last night, and I have to say that he made some very good chicken tenders!

1 lb chicken tenders
1 cup all purpose flour
2 cups panko breadcrumbs
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp ground corriander
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
2 eggs

Put flour onto plate, season with salt, pepper, allspice, corriander and cayenne

Put breadcrumbs onto seperate plate

Whisk eggs in small bowl

Dredge the chicken in the seasoned flour, then eggs and finally breadcrumbs

Heat oil in a large skillet and fry chicken for 10 minutes, or until golden brown

Peppered Cream Gravy:

4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp all purpose flour
2 cups milk
2 cups heavy cream
1/8 tsp allspice
pinch of ceyenne
salt and pepper

Add 4 tbsp of butter and the same amount of flour to a pan

When the butter/flour mixture has melted together and cooked for a few minutes to cook out the raw flour taste start adding warm milk and cream a little at a time

When the milk has been added and the sauce is smooth, add in the spices

If the sauce is too thick add in more milk

Season with lots of black pepper
