2-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
2-2/3 cups pancake mix
1-1/2 cups lemon-lime soda
1/4 cup butter, melted
Oil for deep-fat frying
Place chicken in a 2-qt. microwave-safe bowl. Cover and microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until juices run clear, stirring every 2 minutes; drain. In a shallow bowl, combine the pancake mix, soda and butter.
Heat oil in an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer to 375°. Dip chicken cubes into batter; fry in oil, in batches, for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
