Sweet Chicken Strips


Over the weekend, I went to a friends house for a little get together.  It was a potluck, so I always like to try a bit of everything.  Someone brought chicken strips, I normally wouldn’t try them because I figure, a chicken strip is a chicken strip, but everyone kept talking about these chicken strips so I had one, then I had another, and another.  I couldn’t stop eating them.  So, I tracked down who brought them and begged for the recipe.  I made them last night.  I think you will find the ingredients quite interesting.  I did.

What you will need:

Oil for frying

2 eggs

1 cup buttermilk

1 ½   cups flour

¼ cup powder sugar

½ teaspoon paprika

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon white pepper

¼ teaspoon cayenne

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken strips

Heat oil in a cast iron skillet so it is about 1 inch high, to 365 degrees

In a shallow bowl add the egg and milk and mix together.   In another shallow bowl combine the next 6 ingredients and whisk until thoroughly combined.  Dredge chicken in egg mixture then in flour mixture.  When oil has reached 365 degrees carefully add chicken in to hot oil.  Do not over crowd the pan.  Fry chicken about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until it is golden brown.  Drain chicken on a rack so it stays crispy.


Enjoy ~
