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!!"
