[food] Recipe for Chicken Yum

So I’ve been messing about again in the kitchen. calls this “Chicken Yum”. It’s easy to make, and insanely tasty.


  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 2-3 pre-cooked battered chicken tenders, cold (I get them from the deli counter at the grocery store, you could make them yourself, just so they have a fried-chicken crust)
  • paprika
  • black pepper
  • olive oil


  • Dice garlic very small, almost minced.
  • Slice the tenders very thin, about 1/8″ thick.
  • Cover bottom of frying pan with olive oil, between 1/8″ and 1/4″.
  • Throw in half the diced garlic, place on medium-high burner until olive oil is very hot.
  • Place chicken and remainder of sliced garlic in hot oil.
  • Dust heavily with paprika and black pepper.
  • Cook until chicken is well browned (3-4 minutes or less).
  • Turn out onto paper towel, drain and pat dry.
  • Serve while still warm, with dipping sauce (ranch, honey mustard, etc.), or eat plain.
