For The Sliders

Step 1: Place the chicken in a large bowl and pour sweet tea, buttermilk, and salt on top, and then toss until well mixed. Cover the chicken and place in the refrigerator overnight.

Step 2: Preheat the oven to 475°F.

Step 3: Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with olive oil.

Step 4: In a medium-sized bowl, mix together pepper, cornflake crumbs, cayenne pepper, flour, and seasoned salt.

Step 5: Remove the chicken from the refrigerator and then dip each piece in the crumb mixture, pressing gently.

Step 6: Place each piece of chicken onto the foil-covered sheet.

Step 7: Lightly spray the chicken with cooking oil, then drizzle 4 tablespoons of melted butter over the chicken.

Step 8: Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, then reduce the heat to 400°F and bake for 10-12 more minutes.

Step 9: Flip the chicken, spray it with olive oil, and then place it back in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.

Step 4: Remove oils from buttermilk and coat them with the flour mixture. Make sure to shake off the excess.

Step 5: Carefully drop the onions in the hot oil and, using a spoon, make sure they don’t stick together. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until golden brown.
