Step 1 –In a gallon-size resealable plastic bag, add the all-purpose flour, the salt, the black pepper, the paprika, the garlic powder, and the onion powder, close the bag, and shake to combine.

Step 2 –Add the chicken tenderloins, reseal the bag, and toss until the chicken is coated in the flour mixture.

Step 3 –In a large bowl, whisk together the chicken broth, the milk, and the egg.

Step 4 –Add the self-rising flour to the egg mixture and whisk until combined. The mixture will be thin.

Step 5 –Pour about 2 inches of the oil into a heavy-bottomed skillet.

Step 6 –Heat the oil to 350 degrees F.

Step 7 –Dip the tenders into the batter, coating them and allowing any excess to drip off into the bowl.

Step 8 –Add the chicken tenders very carefully to the hot oil, working in batches as needed so they are not crowded, and fry, occasionally flipping, until they are golden-brown on both sides and have reached 165 degrees F internally, about 6-10 minutes. Add more of the oil if needed in between batches.
