Light and Crispy Chicken Strips

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"Light and crispy chicken strips or nuggets that are juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. Kids love them and they are really customizable to your liking. I use whole wheat flour and canola oil for a healthier twist."

  1. Beat eggs lightly in a bowl; add hot sauce. Place panko and flour in 2 separate bowls.
  2. Mix salt, paprika, pepper, thyme, dried basil, and garlic powder into panko.
  3. Coat chicken strips in flour. Dip into beaten eggs, and then into panko.
  4. Heat about 2 inches of oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Fry chicken strips in batches, until golden brown and until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 3 minutes per side.

We loved it! Only change, I do not like to pan fry or deep fry anything. I baked this in a convection oven at 375. I used pam (oil in a can) on the pan AND on the strips. I did not soak them. Ju...
