A few days ago I mentioned how I wasn’t so found of boneless skinless chicken breasts anymore. Although there is one recipe my entire family loves (including myself!) that starts with them. We’ve made these on a few occasions and the kids just love them.
To make spicy chicken strips, there’s actually two ways you can do it. You can either make the chicken spicy, or you can make a spicy dip. Although even if you have family members who don’t like spicy chicken strips, you can always fry up a few without the spices added.
Chicken strips are pretty basic. Just take your boneless, skinless chicken breasts and cut into strips. Take a gallon sized zip lock bag and add flour, salt, pepper, and spices (if you are making a few strips without the spices, do these first before you add the spice). For the “spice”, I use a mix I picked up from a gourmet food rep. You can use chili pepper or anything else you have that will give it a kick.
In a bowl, mix one egg with a bit of milk. Take your chicken strips and dip them in the egg/milk mix, then drop them in the bag. I usually do about 3-4 strips at a time in the bag. Zip it up and shake (or let the kids do this part – mine love to help in the kitchen!).
While you could probably fry them up on the stove, we use a deep fryer. If you are using a deep fryer, you’ll want to cook them until they float. Let cool before servering.
For a spicy dip you can use hot mustard mixed with honey, or your own personal favorite dipping sauce for chicken strips.
