Yield: 9-12 strips
Ingredients
  • 1½ lbs chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. hot sauce
  • 1 tsp. Worcestershire
  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk
  • 2 c. all-purpose flour
  • 3 tbsp. cornstarch
  • ¼ tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tbsp. seasoned salt (Lawry's)
  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. paprika
  • ½ tsp. cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk
  • Non-stick cooking spray
  • 3 tbsp. butter, melted
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, line a baking sheet with foil, then place a wire rack over top. Spray rack with non-stick baking spray, set aside.
  2. In a rectangular dish with sides,,whisk together the eggs, hot sauce, worcestershire and buttermilk, set aside.
  3. In a large ziploc bag, combine the flour, cornstarch, baking soda, seasoned salt, black pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Add the 2 tablespoons of buttermilk and shake well to create crumbs.
  4. Dip each chicken strip into flour mixture, then into the egg wash (making sure to coat both sides) then place back into the bag, close and shake until coated again. Place on the prepared wire rack, allow to sit for 5 minutes, drizzle the melted butter over the tops.*
  5. Place in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until browned and the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Remove and serve immediately.
Notes
-Typically this recipe makes about 9-12 strips, but it all depends on how thick or thin you like your strips.
-You can also line the baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray it with cooking spray instead of using the wire rack method.
*If you notice you have dry spots while it's baking, you can always remove it and spray some cooking spray over top. I use PAM Olive Oil spray, which I feel give the chicken an extra crispy exterior, but it's totally up to you.
