I needed something quick for dinner the other night and I had chicken breasts in the fridge so I came up with this recipe and it was delicious. I would much rather make my own chicken strips and fry them in a healthy oil then buy the processed frozen variety available in the grocery store. I will be making these often because the kids and the hubby loved them and they were so simple.
3 or more chicken breasts, cut into strips
salt and pepper
Italian flavored Panko crumbs (I found these with bread crumbs in the store)
1. Make three bowls for dipping the chicken before cooking. In the first bowl mix some flour with a little salt and pepper. In the second bowl combine some milk (about a cup to a cup and a half) and a beaten egg. Put some Italian flavored panko crumbs in the third bowl.
2. Heat about 1/4 inch of olive oil in a skillet at medium heat. Dip each chicken strip first into the flour mixture, then into the milk mixture, then into the panko crumbs. Place in the hot oil and fry until golden brown on each side. The chicken will take a few minutes to cook on each side. You can test the chicken with a meat thermometer if you have trouble knowing when it is done. When you cut through the meat it should be white when cooked.
