Have you ever made your own chicken strips? If you haven't, you should! They are delicious! Travis commented that they were the best chicken strips he'd ever had. Pioneer Woman (Have I mentioned how much I LOVE her site?) posted this recipe a couple of months ago and I've been wanting to try it ever since. I decided to tonight. The key ingredient? Buttermilk! I just can't get enough buttermilk these days! You can go here for a detailed pictures and a printable version of the recipe from her site. Enjoy!
Chicken Breasts cut into strips
1 1/2 cups flour
2-3 tsp Lawry's Seasoning Salt (or other seasoning) *I also used a little Cayenne pepper
Vegetable Oil *I used vegetable and canola oil
Rinse and pat dry chicken strips and submerge strips into buttermilk for at least 15-20 minutes. (I let them soak for an hour and a half.)
In another bowl, combine flour and Lawry's. Mix this together well. Next, add about 1/4-1/2 cup buttermilk into the mixture and stir lightly with a fork as you add it.
Remove a few of the buttermilk soaked strips and place them in the flour mixture, turning them over to coat them thoroughly. Place them on a plate. Continue coating them until all the chicken is ready to cook.
Heat oil in a skillet. When oil is ready, begin cooking strips a few at a time. Cook them for a minute and a half or so on each side. When golden and crispy, remove to a paper towel-lined plate.
