Fried Chicken Strips

2-2/3 cups crushed saltines (about 80 crackers)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 egg
1 cup milk
1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch strips
Oil for frying

1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first five ingredients. In another shallow bowl, beat egg and milk. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then cracker mixture.

2. In an electric skillet, on the stovetop (which is how i do it) or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry chicken, a few strips at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.


  1. YUM!!! I like that there's seasoning in the breading and not just breading/flour. Might have to give this one a try. All you food looks sooo good!

  2. so, do you ever at least TRY your meat meals? because i simply couldn't cook meat if i were a vegetarian. i would be way too tempted. especially with fried chicken.

  3. not once. not once in about 16 years. i might taste a sauce but you wont see me sinking my teeth into anything that used to have a heartbeat. or an egg for that matter.

  4. These look delicious! My youngest would love them, she is a chicken strip fanatic.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog.


  5. I'm traveling here from NFF with TT and TGC.
    You have some really interesting recipes on your site and I'm going to have to try them out.

    How do you stay a Vegetarian with meat eaters in the house?

  6. That's easy Jen. I've been a vegetarian for 16 years. I met my husband the carnivore 5 years ago so I was pretty set in my food ways when we met =)
