Reviews for Fried Chicken Strips
"For a faster fix, I use chicken tenders; no slicing needed."
"Have made these many times family eats them up"
"My wife and son made this tonight. It is the best fried chicken I've ever tasted, bar none. Light and tasty, you can still taste the chicken and not just the breading. Chef Jeff"
"Delicious! I used Ritz Wheat Crackers"
"I tried these in place of fried buffalo wings and they were a huge hit. I used panko crumbs."
