#3428 - Buttermilk Chicken Strips

(by Shirley McNevich)

3lbs. boneless/skinless chicken breasts
3 cups flour
3 tsp. Lawry's seasoning salt
canola oil

Salt and pepper both sides of each chicken breast. If the chicken breasts are thick, slice them in half sideways (from one side to the other through the middle), then cut all of the chicken into strips. In a glass bowl add the chicken strips--pour buttermilk over the chicken strips until the chicken strips are covered. Cover the bowl and let them sit for 1 hour. In a bowl add the flour and Lawry's seasoning salt--stir to mix. Add 1/4 cup of buttermilk to the flour mixture--stir with a fork. Add a little more buttermilk at a time and stir until the batter is the consistency of pancake batter. In a cast iron skillet over medium heat add an inch or so of canola oil--heat oil until hot. Remove one chicken strip at a time from the buttermilk and dip/coat it in the batter mixture, then place it in the hot oil. Repeat with more chicken strips (but don't let them touch each other). When the bottoms are browned and crispy, flip the chicken strips until the other sides are browned and crispy. Set them on paper towels to soak up extra oil. Continue with remaining chicken strips.
