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.

  • Beat eggs lightly in a bowl; add hot sauce. Place panko and flour in 2 separate bowls.

  • Mix salt, paprika, pepper, thyme, dried basil, and garlic powder into panko.

  • Coat chicken strips in flour. Dip into beaten eggs, and then into panko.

  • 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. Just lightly sprayed. Cooked for 10 minutes flipped and lightly sprayed again. Cooked another 7 minutes. Awesome! Read More

We really enjoyed this dish! The only thing I could say about the recipe is to go a little short on the flour until you know how much you really need because I had quite a bit left. Otherwise I followed the recipe. Thanks so much for a wonderful meal! My husband especially thanks you! Read More

I made this and my children loved this. The only thing i changed was the wheat flour because i did not have any used plain flour instead. Will definitely be making this regularly. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

I use one stick of salted butter melted and a roll of Ritz Crackers ground up with a rolling pen. Dip in butter and dip into cracker crumbs. Place on a cookie sheet in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Cook for 20 minutes and take pan out of oven and turn all of the chicken tenders over. Return to oven for 20 more minutes. These are fantastic!! Read More

The only thing I did differently was soaked my chicken tenders in buttermilk for a few hours. Followed the recipe and it came out soooo good. Read More
