Today's recipe is one of those guilty pleasures that we all need to allow ourselves to have, every now and then. It's not healthy and doesn't pretend to be. But, that's okay. It's not meant to be a weekly staple, but a once in a while treat. You won't believe how easy it is to make chicken strips like you get in a restaurant. Nice and crispy and full of flavor.
Here's your Cast of Characters.
1/2 Cup Frank's RedHot Sauce (not any other kind of hot sauce will do)
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 Cups flour
1 1/2 Tbsps. Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning
1/2 Tbsp. black pepper
In a large flat dish, such as a cake pan, whisk together eggs and hot sauce.
Cut chicken into strips and place into the egg mixture.
Let the strips marinate in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, up to an hour. Then, heat 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet, over medium high heat. Combine the flour with the seasonings.
Add the chicken strips, rolling until well-coated with flour.
Drop into hot oil, frying until the first side becomes golden. Then, flip over and repeat.
Total cooking time will be about 15-20 minutes. Remove to a paper towel covered platter to drain.
Serve while hot and crispy with your favorite dipping sauce, or without - they're good either way.
Oh, so yummy!!
