"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."
"simple and easy love it."
"My son and I love these! Simple to make and didn't make a mess of my whole kitchen! Not having garlic powder, I added 2 sliced garlic cloves to the egg mix. Delicious!"
"This recipe is good. I did use what I had on hand so instead of buttermilk I used 1/4 cup of half-and-half and 1/4 cup whole milk and substituted season salt for regular salt and used a little less. Then, I added about a 1/4 teaspoon of poultry seasoning with a dash of chicken boullion. The chicken turned out great; not too salty either. I also used peanut oil which gets hotter quicker, I believe cooks better at higher temperature. Excellent base recipe for someone who wants to add/subtract ingredients!! Definitely try and make it your own!!"
