As most know, tonight my husband is dragging me to a haunted house, and I’m one of the biggest chickens when it comes to scary things that there probably is. I think I have had anxiety about this all week, considering they told me on Monday, and I haven’t slept well, I know that’s what it is!! So, I figured this would be an appropriate time to discuss our dinner last night, considering we had….CHICKEN!! I made homemade chicken strips, mashed baked potatoes, and corn. A small little dinner, but oh so good!!
More about the fried goodness of homemade chicken strips…yesterday morning I drug the little chicken tenders out of the freezer, quickly ran them under hot water to get the littler soaker pad thing off the bottom, then filled up a shallow covered dish with salt water and let them soak all day in that. When I got home I took them out and drained them, cracked 2 eggs in a dish, added a little splash of milk and dumped them in. Next I mixed up 2 cups or so of flour, few dashes of salt, and some season salt(I don’t like pepper, so add if you must). Then I went on to dredge them in flour, put them back in the milk/egg and back in the flour again, I wanted them good covered, lots of fried flour!!! Then into the ‘ol trusty cast iron they went…
I let them cook for about 20-30 minutes, until they’re good and crispy, I just want to make sure they’re good and done, but not too dry!! When they’re done they look like this…
Ta-da, don’t mind my paper towel, I didn’t take the time to transfer to a prettier plate to take a picture, we were all hungry!!!
And there’s the big chickens-chicken strips!!
4-5 Chicken Tenders
1/3 Cup milk
2 cups (or more of flour)
1/2 T salt
1/2 T Seasoned Salt
Canola oil for frying, I usually fill my skillet up about 1/2 inch.
Doulbe dip your tenders, egg/milk flour-then egg/milk again and back into the flour, fry for 20-30 min on med/high heat….
