  1. Put chicken strips in a resealable plastic bag.   Whisk together egg, buttermilk, mustard, and garlic powder.   Pour mixture in with chicken and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
  2. In another plastic bag, mix the panko, and 1 T of kosher salt.
  3. Put chicken in the panko bag and liberally coat.
  4. In a thick-bottomed skillet, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil (or oil of your choice) until the temperature reaches about 340 degrees. Fry the chicken tenders until golden brown and crispy, turning once (about 5 minutes), then drain on a cooling rack or paper towels.
