From the Test Kitchen

Tonight, classic chicken tenders get a few exciting upgrades. Instead of the traditional breadcrumbs, we’re coating our chicken in matzo meal, which crisps up deliciously in the pan for the perfect crunch. We’re also making hot honey, a simple combination of honey and hot sauce: perfect for adding a spicy-sweet drizzle to the chicken. Potato salad and marinated cucumber round out the dish on a refreshing note.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Remove the honey from the refrigerator to bring to room temperature. Heat a small saucepan of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the cucumber, leaving alternating strips of skin intact. Halve the cucumber lengthwise; using a spoon, scoop out and discard the seeds. Thinly slice the cucumber crosswise; place in a medium bowl. Medium dice the potatoes. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice, separating the white bottoms and green tops.

Marinate the cucumber:
2 Marinate the cucumber:

Add half the vinegar to the bowl of cucumber. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, for at least 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish.

Cook the potatoes & make the potato salad:
3 Cook the potatoes & make the potato salad:

While the cucumber marinates, add the potatoes to the saucepan of boiling water. Cook 12 to 14 minutes, or until tender when pierced with a fork. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the saucepan. Add the quark cheese, mayonnaise, white bottoms of the scallions, and remaining vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Bread the chicken:
4 Bread the chicken:

While the potatoes cook, crack the egg into a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper and beat until smooth. Place the flour and matzo meal in 2 separate medium bowls; season each with salt and pepper. Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on both sides. Working 2 pieces at a time, thoroughly coat the seasoned chicken in the flour (tapping off any excess), then in the beaten egg (letting any excess drip off), then in the matzo meal (pressing to adhere). Transfer to a separate plate.

Cook the chicken:
5 Cook the chicken:

While the potatoes continue to cook, in a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high until hot. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of matzo meal sizzles immediately when added to the pan, add the breaded chicken and cook 3 to 5 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through. (If the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil before flipping the chicken.) Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate; immediately season with salt.

Make the hot honey & plate your dish:
6 Make the hot honey & plate your dish:

While the chicken cooks, in a bowl, combine the honey and up to half the hot sauce, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be (you will have extra hot sauce). Divide the cooked chicken and potato salad between 2 dishes. Garnish the potato salad with the green tops of the scallions. Serve with the marinated cucumber and hot honey on the side. Enjoy!
