According to Texas Chicken & Burgers, “We can trace chicken tenders to The Puritan diner, in the New Hampshire city of Manchester. This Greek diner, opened by immigrants in 1917 and operated by the same family since then, claims the creation of chicken tenders. Chris Pappas, a descendant of one of the diner’s founding families, described how in 1974, the diner was serving up boneless chicken breasts. This involved trimming down entire chicken breasts into strips, which were then marinated and fried.”
Chicken tenders develop a deeper flavor when marinating them in egg. But, if you don’t have time, you can skip this step. Cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. You may add dried basil, dried oregano, sage, thyme, or tarragon to the spice mixture.
