Whisk together the flour, cayenne, Old Bay, salt and pepper.  Dip the chicken tenders in the buttermilk then dredge in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.

 

Heat 2 inches of oil in a large pot.  Fry the tenders in batches in 350˚F oil until golden brown and cooked through, about 3-5 minutes.  Remove, drain on paper towels and season to taste with salt.
