Fresh made chicken strips beat the frozen version by a mile !!!
2 cups crushed saltine crackers ( the finer, the better )
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 egg ( beaten )
1 cup milk
1 1/2 lbs. to 2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breast
Directions : ( heat oil in fryer to 375 degrees, 1 to 2 inches deep ).
Mix first 6 ingredients together and put into a shallow bowl ( I use a pie pan ). Combine beaten egg and milk in another shallow bowl.
Trim excess fat from chicken breast and cut into 1/2 inch strips.
Dip chicken strip into egg mixture, then roll in cracker mixture. Carefully place in heated oil and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, turning once ( cook only three or four strips at a time ). Remove from oil and place on paper towel covered tray.
Turn off the fryer and get out the dipping sauce. I like mine dipped in BBQ sauce.
