These Italian Chicken Strips are a meal my kids just love! Plus, I love knowing that we are eating real chicken and not some kind of weird science experiment and conglomeration! Sorry, homemade is always better quality and better tasting in my opinion!
We eat about half of this recipe for dinner one night and the rest gets put in the freezer for another night! Is there anything better than getting 2 (or more) meals while doing the “work” for one?! These strips are super simple to make and your family will love them! Enjoy!
1 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic salt
6 large eggs
1/4 cup water
3 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-in. strips
Vegetable oil, for deep-fat frying
In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat about 1-in. of oil to 375°F.
In a medium bowl or pie plate, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt.
In a separate pie plate, beat the eggs and water to combine.
Dip the chicken strips into the egg mixture, then shake/turn into the crumb mixture, coating well.
Fry the chicken in batches until golden brown and cooked through, turning to cook all sides if necessary. Drain on paper towels.
