For this recipe you will need:
- Boneless skinless Chicken Strips (enough for your size family, I use a little over a pound for 4 people),
- vegetable oil,
- your favorite seasonings, I used garlic powder, seasoned salt, chicken seasoning and soul seasoning, (whatever seasonings that you have and like will be fine)
*Wash chicken strips, shake off excess water and set them on a plate, place some flour in a gallon size plastic zip bag, set aside
*Beat the egg and about a Tablespoon of Milk in a wide shallow bowl or deep plate, set aside
*Season chicken strips generously with seasonings, and dip them in the egg/milk mixture
*Now put a few in at the time in the zipper bag of flour, zip and coat chicken strips, then place on a plate until ready to fry.
*Now put enough vegetable oil in a deep skillet, to fill it about 1/3 of the skillet, see my pics and judge how much oil to put in the skillet, you don't want to put too much oil, because adding the chicken is going to make the oil rise and you don't want the oil to overflow at all.
*Now heat oil on Med-high heat for about 5-7 minutes until it's hot enough to fry in....you can test the grease to see if it's ready to fry in by placing a pinch of flour in the skillet after several minutes of heating, when the flour sizzles, it's hot enough to fry in. Note: As a safety precaution, never turn your back on grease or leave it unattended, it can get hot quickly.
*Now, carefully place each chicken strip in the grease, once they are all in, time it and cook it 3 minutes on each side for approximately 12 minutes or until no longer pink. After a few minutes of cooking on Medium-high heat, You can reduce the heat to medium, if the grease seems to be getting too hot.
Drain on a paper towel lined plate
Serve with Honey Mustard Sauce or your favorite dipping sauce.
Honey Mustard Recipe (below)
My sweet oldest son came up this Honey Mustard recipe himself years ago, when he was only around 14 years old...he came up with this, because we could never buy one that we all really liked....I thought he was so smart to think this up, and I must say that it's the best we have ever had, and I make it all the time. Special thanks to my precious son, for inventing this recipe for us to enjoy and for always being such a joy to us all of these years that have seemed to have flown by. If we knew how, we'd bottle your honey mustard, and market it, and sell it with your name on it, but the best I can do is give it honor here on my blog for all to enjoy! It will always have your name on it Austin. Love you :)
For this Honey Mustard Recipe You Will Need:
- 2 Heaping Tablespoons of Mayonnaise (just use a spoon from your regular silverware drawer)
- 2 Heaping teaspoons of Mustard (just use a spoon from your regular silverware drawer)
- 1 to 2 Tablespoons of Honey (add Tablespoon to taste until desired sweetness)
- Sprinkle Seasoned Salt, and Pepper to taste
Mix ingredients together in a small bowl, serve as dipping sauce for chicken strips.
NOTE: For an optional different twist on this sauce, I sometimes add about a 1/2 teaspoon of prepared Horseradish to the honey mustard to give it a kick, I'm the only one in the family that likes it with a kick though lol.
