Reviews for Southern Fried Chicken Strips
"Substituted Penzey's Roasted garlic for garlic powder, held salt til after the chicken was fried and draining, omitted cheese. Beautiful crunchy chicken that the coating stays put when you cut it with a fork."
"My first time ever preparing chicken tenders dipped in batter. I usually saute as is. This recipe is great. The fried tenders were a hit! I substituted Lawry's Seasoning Salt for the regular salt and also added about 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt. I don't have an electric skillet, but a regular non-stick skillet worked just fine and I cooked the chicken for about 5 minutes on each side to get that perfect golden color and crisp. The chicken on the inside was perfectly cooked, tender and juicy! Will definitely add this to my dinner rotation!"
"This is a question rather than a review, how can it be so low in saturated fat with an egg and parmesan cheese? I would love to try it but am concerned."
"This is definitely the best strip recipe. I made my own buttermilk and double-dipped the chicken."
"My family of picky eaters rated this to be the "bomb" of chicken strips. Which in my house is a huge compliment."
