4. To prepare the sauce, in a small bowl, combine all the ingredients for the sauce and whisk well.
5. Once the chicken tenderloins are done marinating, heat oil in a pan for frying the chicken pieces until it reaches 350 F.
6. Insert each individual piece into the wet batter. Next, dust into the dry batter until evenly coated.
7.Working in batches, deep-fry the chicken in the heated oil, stirring gently to prevent the pieces from sticking together, until golden brown and crisp, about 5 minutes per batch.
8. Remove with wire strainer or tongs and place on paper towel to drain.
9. To prepare the sweet potato fries, dust the potato strips in the leftover flour and deep fry in the heated oil for about 5 - 7 minutes until golden brown and crispy.
