Fried Chicken Strips Recipe

Fried Chicken Strips Recipe

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
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2-2/3 cups crushed saltines (about 80 crackers)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
  • Oil for frying

Directions

  • 1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another shallow bowl, beat egg and milk. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then cracker mixture.
  • 2. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry chicken, a few strips at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Yield: 6 servings.

"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"

"I have made this many many times!! Instead of using crackers I substitute panko instead, which gives it a nice light crispy taste!! I dip the chicken in the egg mixture, then some flour with pepper in it then back in the mixture then into the panko that has all the other ingredients in it. Then fry it. Very GOOD!!"

"substituted garlic powder for garlic salt and used beer can seasoning in place of basil, fried in olive oil. everyone thought they were really tasty. w/ having to double the recipe and take care of a 4yo and baby while prepping and cooking, this recipe took way longer than anticipated. i ended up having half the cracker crumbs left over. next time i'll cut some corners, half the crackers and buy already cut strips instead of whole breasts."

"Loved this recipe. I was having one of those days where nothing sounded good. I opened the fridge and saw chicken...glanced at my deep fryer and decided what the [expletive], I've never deep fried chicken.. cant be that hard.. googled fried chicken strips recipe and this came up...It was delicious, the saltine crackers created a very light breading that was amazing and the garlic salt and pepper were a great accent of flavor. Will cook again!"

"This was very good. I used 1/2 cracker crumbs and 1/2 whole wheat flour in place of the saltines. I also pan fried the chicken pieces in about 1 Tbsp of oil until they were just cooked through and then finished them off for 5 minutes in a 375 degree oven while I made cream gravy with the drippings in the pan. Much healthier than deep-frying and still very tasty!"
