Over the years, chicken tenders have evolved.

Every state, every family has its own version of this all-time favorite dish.

From original buttermilk, spicy, crispy-baked, and grilled to buffalo chicken strips, each one has a distinct flavor that’s worth trying.

Pair it with fries, cornbread, and the all-time favorite coleslaw, and you are good to go.

Most of the time, you can eat it as a snack, but it can also be a meal itself. Which recipe is your favorite?

Now, we all know that this dish is one of the easiest recipes that we can make.

However, there is still one thing that we hate doing – removing those stubborn chicken tendons. When you prepare your chicken tenders, the first thing that you will need to do is to prepare your chicken strips.

Marinating, coating, and frying are the easy part. What’s hard is removing those white tendon strips from your chicken fillet.

Some people say that the tendon strips would actually become soft and can be eaten once cooked.

But wouldn’t it be nice to have them removed?

If you are used to cooking chicken tenders, then we are pretty sure that you have tried using different methods to remove those tendons.

If you have tried using a knife, you will know how tedious that can be.

You may end up with mushy chicken breasts or worse, you will waste lots of chicken meat.

Imagine if you have to cook for your whole family.

Would you endure the task, or would you just choose to marinade everything and ignore that white stuff on your precious recipe?

You will only need a fork, your chicken strips, and a paper towel.

This food hack is so simple. Just get your chicken breast and then get your fork. Slide that fork under the white fat or chicken tendon and then hold the chicken in place.

Grab the tendon with a paper towel so it won’t slip, then just pull that tendon swiftly.

That’s how easy it is.
