Fried Chicken Strips

Another new recipe!

This was great and will definitely be made again! I made it with 5 lbs of chicken breasts…made a lot and will be several meals for our family.

I have not tried it but I’m sure these would freeze well too and I’m all for stocking the freezer for quick and easy future meals!

5 lbs. chicken breasts, pounded down and cut into pieces

Place in a 9 x 13 pan and pour about 2 cups buttermilk over chicken. Place in refrigerator overnight. (or for several hours)

Coating for chicken:

3 cups flour

3 tsp. garlic salt/powder (optional) I did not have on hand but want to use next time!

3 tsp. pepper

2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. paprika or cayenne pepper (anything red’ll do! Ha!)

6 tbsp. grated parmesan cheese…(that’s like a half cup)

Mix coating together in a shallow pan. I used my square pyrex.

Add oil for frying in skillet. Heat to 350 degrees. Coat chicken and fry chicken pieces 3-5 minutes per side.

5 lbs was a lot so I had to do this in batches but as long as I was going to the work of “raw” chicken and frying I just wanted to have at it and get’r done.

Big family favorite!

Just ate them with cole slaw and potato salad and fresh fruit ~ wonderful picnic style dinner.

I’m also thinking this chicken would be great for chicken sandwiches, dipped in sweet n sour sauce, mandarin chicken, chicken parmesan…

Happy Eating!


  1. This sounds delicious! Did you save me a piece? ;-)

  2. I think we are going to try this recipe next week. Sounds perfect for an evening dinner on the porch. :)

  3. We tried these tonight. Yummy!! Everyone from my 27 yo son-in-law to my 7yo loved them! I am interested in how they hold up on the second round- we have lots of left overs even though we only made 3lbs.(for 8 of us) not 5.
