Breaded Chicken Strips are a home-style classic and a perfect meal for a new cook to prepare. Our Test Kitchen staff created tender, golden brown chicken strips that are tasty and just right for two. The breading is made from everyday ingredients already in most kitchens, and there are only a handful of steps. Why go out for a chicken fingers basket, when it's this easy to make your own?
