Cajun Chicken Strips

These tender strips have just the right amount of spice for my family. If I happen to have pork chops on hand, I'll use them instead.—Carrina Cooper, McAlpin, Florida

    My husband and I love this recipe! We loved it so much that we are going to make sandwiches out of them. Instead of poultry seasoning I used Creole seasoning.

    Honestly, it taste like cardboard, ended up using it to make manchurian chicken

    I used this for a quick fix chicken to go with pasta alfrado. They were good but nothing amazing.

    This is our favorite meal, I use a griddle and instead of using butter I spray the griddle with butter flavored pam and lightly spray the top of the chicken when I turn it over.
