I cook chicken breast halves in a sauté pan with no breading, just seasoning. They cook through fine. I don't see why you couldn't make the tenders thicker.

Also, I would suggest seasoning and cooking a smaller batch till you're happy with it. Then you can scale up the recipe.

Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

Season the tenders and let them sit for a 1/2 hour or so before dipping and frying. I was thinking along the lines of tempura batter.

Not for tenders. I guess it would be fine. Just not traditional.

Chef says dip in buttermilk first, then dredge.

I do my chicken parts very simple. I usually do wings or drumsticks, but I also do breast strips this way too. I season thoroughly first with the chicken just damp enough to hold the seasoning. I will sometimes use thyme and rosemary for a savory, traditional poultry seasoning, or cajun or jerk seasoning for a spicier strip. Most anything you like will work, but do your seasoning thoroughly before you bread or flour the chicken.

My favorite for wings and drumsticks is Savory Spice Shop Jamaican Jerk dry seasoning. I use it liberally and season all pieces before dredging in flour. After dredging I let them sit for about 10 minutes until the flour is tacky, Then into a frying pan with oil heated on medium heat. I don't deep fry, just normal fried chicken - oil about half way up the chicken parts - use less oil for smaller pieces. I will usually turn them a couple of times to get them evenly browned. Drain on a rack or paper towel and eat.
