Breaded Chicken Strips

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?

    I adjusted this recipe for four chicken breasts. I doubled everything except the pepper and garlic salt. Instead, I added 1/4 tsp of pepper and only 1/4 tsp of regular salt. The end result was crunchy tenders on the outside and moist meat on the inside. Easy and all on-hand ingredients! Also not all the flour is used so next time I am not going to double that:)
