This jalapeno-fried chicken is EASILY the best fried chicken there is. Perfectly seasoned chicken strips with a kick of spice from the crunchy fried jalapenos. For a crowd-pleasing chicken tender recipe, you can never go wrong with jalapeno chicken. With the perfect ratio of crispy to spicy, these tenders marinated in jalapeno juice will have everyone running back for seconds…and thirds!
If there is one meal that Hunter would like to eat every single night…it’d be Jalapeno Fried Chicken. Though I do try to eat a bit healthier throughout the day, this recipe is still a favorite to make for dinner. The kids love it too-yes, even Jackaroo! You would think the jalapeno chicken would be too spicy for them but it’s actually not. The batter for the chicken is perfectly seasoned, and the jalapenos themselves are what adds a kick, so I leave those off the kids’ plates – haha! The chicken is SO tender from the marinade. This is what truly sets this recipe apart from other fried chicken.
