I recently made this recipe of Mom's for my in-laws and they told me it was the "best fried chicken ever." Slicing the chicken breasts into strips cuts down on cooking time and ensures every piece is crunchy and evenly coated. Serve it with your favorite dipping sauce. —Genny Monchamp, Redding, California
My kids love these tender, moist chicken strips! My husband and I cut up the chicken and add to a lettuce salad with eggs, tomatoes and cheese. And everybody's happy! —Rachel Fizel, Woodbury, Minnesota
For our family, it's not a picnic unless there's fried chicken! Chicken, deviled eggs and potato salad are all "musts" for a picnic as far as my husband is concerned.
This is a "Golden Oldie" recipe for meI've used it any number of times, both for leisure time picnics and as part of a meal I pack and take out to the field for my grain farmer.
I enjoy cooking, especially giving a recipe a couple of tries and adjusting it or throwing it out. I always remember back to the way Mom or Grandma used to do things when I'm in the kitchenthe memory inspires me!
I've always loved corn fritters, but they weren't satisfying as a main dish. I came up with this recipe and was thrilled when my husband and our three young boys gave it rave reviews. The chicken and zesty sauce make these a wonderful brunch or lunch entree.

"My husband turned up his nose when he saw me making this the first time, but he absolutely flipped when he tasted it. I like to serve the chicken with an apple rice pilaf salad." —Amanda Donnelly, Fairborn, Ohio
There is no need for a special occasion to prepare this chicken recipe, because it makes every occasion special! When I was growing up, my parents had a farm, and every year, Dad would hire teenage boys to help by haying time. They looked forward to coming because they knew they would be treated to Mom's delicious fried chicken. —Lola Clifton, Vinton, Virginia
