One of the easiest things to make with chicken is possibly crispy chicken strips. This recipe is great if you are looking for a quick meal. Just marinate overnight, a few minutes to coat, throw them in the deep fryer and you’re done! The marinade for the strips not only enhances the overall flavor but also leaves them super juicy coming out of the deep fryer. The coating tastes amazing and they are double dipped leaving them extra crispy. If you like to add a little heat to your strips not a problem, just throw a little cayenne pepper into the seasoning mixture and your set. You can either use whole chicken breasts and cut them into strips or just buy chicken tenders from the store. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy.
6 chicken breasts (or store bought chicken tenders)
½ tablespoon potassium chloride
½ tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon accent salt
1/8 tablespoon garlic powder
¼ cup bottle chicken base
1 ¾ cups water
2 cups all purpose flour
2 ½ teaspoons salt
¾ teaspoon pepper
¾ teaspoon accent salt
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg (beaten)
1 cup milk
oil (for deep frying)
Step 1: If using chicken breasts, cut chicken breasts into strips. Combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl or sealable bag and marinade chicken strips over night in the refrigerator.
Step 2: In a shallow bowl beat together 1 egg and 1 cup of milk. Combine all of the coating ingredients in another shallow bowl, pie plate, or shaker bag and mix well.
Step 3: Dip the chicken strips into the egg mixture, then into the coating and double dip.
Step 4: Fry in the deeper fryer at 375 degrees until golden brown or until they float. Drain on paper towels.
