Batter-dipped Turkey Tenders #SundaySupper

Serve Batter-dipped Turkey Tenders when chicken tenders just will not do.

I eat very little deep fried foods. Breaded, oven-fried chicken and fish usually win out.

But there are times when I crave something crunchy and satisfying like crispy fries or beer-battered anything. Bite into a light, flaky, crunchy coated slice of turkey tenderloin and you’ll wonder why you never thought of making turkey this way before!

Beer batter knocks this dish out of the park. Hmm, park, picnic, turkey tenders, I see a great idea brewing (pun intended).

Best part is you can eat these treats with your fingers. That’s a good thing since this week Sunday Supper serves up our favorite finger-licking good finger foods!

Create a dish that doesn’t need a knife and fork, or even chopsticks to get it to your mouth.

Less dishes right? 😉

Beer batter-dipped foods add a lighter crust that seals in the juices of meat. This is a great way to make turkey since turkey easily winds up dry or overcooked.

Remember to serve plenty of napkins. Oh and steak fries go great with these too!

    I usually bake dishes that call for frying for obvious reasons. But the other day I was watching a cooking show, and they made beer battered fish, and it was light and flaky, and pan fried so not dredged in grease or anything too terrible, and then you post these Batter Dipper Turkey Tenders – I think this is a sign! These look delish, Cindy!

    I love that you used turkey! I see those strips all the time or those “steaks” at the store and just never really know what to do with them. Now I do! They look SO GOOD!
