✅Ingredients

Chicken Strips
• 1 1/2 – 2 pounds chicken tenders trimmed of fat
• 1 large egg
• 2 tablespoons milk
• 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour divided
• 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
• 1/2 teaspoon paprika
• 1/2 cup butter melted, for baked method
• Vegetable oil for frying, about 2 inches

✅Instructions

Frying Instructions:

1️⃣ Add in about 2 inches of oil to a deep skillet. Heat over medium heat until oil reaches 350-375 degrees Fahrenheit.

2️⃣ In a shallow dish or pie plate, add in 1/2 cup flour. In a separate dish, beat together egg and milk. In a 3rd dish, combine 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, 1 cup flour, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and paprika.

3️⃣ Working one at a time, dip chicken tenders into the plain flour and shake off excess. Then dip into the egg mixture, and then into the breadcrumb/flour mixture. Make sure to coat thoroughly. Place on prepared baking sheet, leaving a small amount of space between each strip.

4️⃣ Place about 3-4 strips into the preheated oil and fry for about 3-4 minutes until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Work in batches to not crowd the pan until all are fried. Place on a paper towel lined plate or baking sheet to let excess oil drain off.

5️⃣ Serve chicken strips hot with dipping sauce.

Baking Instructions:

1️⃣ Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Air Fryer Instructions:

1️⃣ Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

3️⃣ Work in batches so that you don’t crowd the air fryer.
