Made these tonight. They are very good. We dipped then in honey-mustard dressing. However, I think that the breading recipe could easily be cut in half. I dumped quite a bit of it into the trash can after we finished frying the chicken.

If the grandkids don’t come up for air, it gets 5 stars from me! Have to figure out time in the air fryer (I’m new to that world)!

For a faster fix, I use chicken tenders; no slicing needed.

My wife and son made this tonight. It is the best fried chicken I've ever tasted, bar none. Light and tasty, you can still taste the chicken and not just the breading. Chef Jeff

I tried these in place of fried buffalo wings and they were a huge hit. I used panko crumbs.
