Southern Fried Chicken Strips

Ok, so for those of you who don't know... I live in the good ole' state of Louisiana. Home of the best foods in the world :)

Anyways, I wanted to share a recipe with you guys for southern style fried chicken strips.

Disclaimer: This is NOT a healthy recipe ;)

First heat up some oil in a skillet. Just about 1/2 inch or so...

In one bowl mix together an egg and some milk.

In another bowl add flour and seasonings you like. I added salt, pepper, Tony's Cajun Seasoning, Season-All, and garlic powder. I love seasonings!

Dip your defrosted chicken strips in the egg mixture.

Then add them to the flour mixture and coat well.

You can go ahead and cook them now, but there won't be as thick of a crust. I like add another layer of batter for extra yummy goodness :) So add the coated chicken back to the egg mixture...

And then back to the flour, coating well again.

Now add your chicken to your hot oil. Make sure it's not too hot because you don't want your chicken to cook too fast on the outside and not enough on the inside. Adjust the heat accordingly.

Let it cook until it's nice and brown and cooked through... see how golden and delicious?

Serve hot and enjoy! I like to make mine with mashed potatoes so I can dip my chicken strips in the potatoes. Weird? Oh well!

These were so good! Crispy crust with a juicy center. I made my super spicy with the cajun seasoning but it balanced well with the potatoes.

How do you make chicken strips?

Being a Southern girl at heart making these strips brought me back to summers in Baton Rouge. Thank you for reminding me of my happy days.

I've never actually made fried chicken - you made it look really easy (and really good!) Princess Nagger LOVES fried chicken, and hubby loves all things spicy, so I'm definitely going to give this a try! ;)

Following you from Fun Follow Friday! :)
