1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs beaten
2 tablespoons buttermilk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
8 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® 4 Cheese Italian Blend cut in half diagonally
8 slider buns
1/2 cup marinara sauce, warmed
*Substitute 1 1/2 tablespoons vinegar or lemon juice and enough milk to equal almost 1 3/4 cups. Let stand 5 minutes. Use 1 1/2 cups for chicken and 2 tablespoons for bread crumbs.
Slice chicken breasts in half width-wise; cut each half into 2 pieces. Lightly pound each piece with meat tenderizer to 1/4-inch thickness.
Combine chicken, 1 1/2 cups buttermilk, salt, garlic powder and pepper in gallon-sized resealable plastic food bag. Seal bag; shake until chicken is well coated. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
Place bread crumbs, flour and eggs into individual shallow bowls. Add 2 tablespoons buttermilk to bread crumbs; stir until combined.
Remove chicken tenders from marinade, shaking off excess. Coat each chicken tender with flour, shaking off excess. Dip into beaten egg. Press into bread crumb mixture.
Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until piece of breading dropped into pan begins to sizzle.
Heat oven to 200ºF.
Place 4 chicken pieces into skillet; cook 6-8 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature of chicken reaches 165°F, chicken is golden brown and is no longer pink in center. Keep cooked chicken warm in oven; repeat cooking process with remaining chicken.
