Reviews for Fried Chicken Strips
"My family loved this recipe. This will be my go-to recipe for chicken strips going forward. Thank you!"
"For a faster fix, I use chicken tenders; no slicing needed."
"Have made these many times family eats them up"
"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."
"I have made these many times and I always get rave reviews!"
"My husband could not quit eating these! I made them with Panko but followed the rest of the recipe. I think he would have me make them every night! LOL!"
"This recipe was a big hit with my family! We can't wait to make it again!"
"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!!"
"My girls and I loved this recipe!"
"I love this recipie for lunch on weekends with my favourite dipping honey mustard. Instead of saltines i use cornflakes and they taste great!!"
"This is excellent but you only need about half of the cracker crumbs."
"This recipe was awesome!!!!"
"Enjoyed the recipe and will make again. Next time, I will cut the amount of crackers to 1 1/2-2 cups."
"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."
"I have made these several times: my family (including the kids) LOVES them! We dip them in whatever sauce we want at the time - BBQ sauce, ranch dressing, honey mustard are favorites!"
"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!"
"pretty good. a bit too salty."
"Very easy to make!!!"
"These are great!"
"These were really good!! Can't get over the crispness of the coating, and the wonderful flavor from the seasonings.Thank you!"
"I prepared these for my husband and a foster daughter (who doesn't like to eat meat), however, you wouldn't have guessed that about her if you had seen her scarfing these chicken strips down! LOL! They were awesome and we ate them without any dip of any kind."
"This was awesome! My husband, two toddlers and I loved this chicken receipe. My husband just bought me a new deep fryer and this was the first receipe I made. thank you!"
"This recipe was great! I followed the recipe to a "t" and me and my fiance loved them."
"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!"
"I made this tonight and it was wonderful. I bought a bag of those frozen strips and cut them into smaller strips. Kids and adults loved them alike!"
