  • 1 pound chicken breasts, cut into strips
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Prepare the Coating:
    • In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
    • In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and buttermilk.
    • Place the panko breadcrumbs in a third bowl.
  2. Coat the Chicken:
    • Dredge each chicken strip in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
    • Dip the floured chicken strips into the egg mixture, ensuring they are well coated.
    • Finally, coat the chicken strips with the panko breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere.
  3. Fry the Chicken:
    • Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Once the oil is hot (around 350°F or 175°C), carefully add the chicken strips in batches. Avoid overcrowding the skillet.
    • Fry the chicken strips for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
    • Use a slotted spoon to transfer the chicken strips to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  4. Serve:
    • Serve the crispy chicken strips hot with your favorite dipping sauces, such as ranch, honey mustard, or barbecue sauce.
