Crispy chicken strips are a beloved comfort food that never goes out of style.

In this blog post, we’ll share a mouthwatering recipe for homemade crispy chicken strips that are sure to become a staple in your kitchen.

– 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
– 1 cup all-purpose flour
– 2 eggs, beaten
– 1 cup breadcrumbs (plain or seasoned)
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp paprika
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1/4 tsp black pepper
– Vegetable oil, for frying
– Dipping sauce of your choice (e.g., honey mustard, barbecue sauce, ranch)


1. Prepare the chicken strips: Start by cutting the chicken breasts into evenly-sized strips. This ensures that they cook evenly and have a uniform texture. Pat the chicken strips dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture, which helps the breading adhere better.

2. Set up your breading station: In three separate shallow bowls, place the flour seasoned with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and pepper; beaten eggs; and breadcrumbs. This setup makes the breading process efficient and less messy.

3. Bread the chicken strips: One at a time, coat each chicken strip in the seasoned flour, shaking off any excess. Then, dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off. Finally, coat the chicken strip evenly with breadcrumbs, pressing gently to ensure the crumbs adhere well.

4. Fry the chicken strips: In a large skillet or deep fryer, heat vegetable oil to 350°F (175°C). Carefully place the breaded chicken strips into the hot oil, working in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan. Fry the strips for 4-5 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. Use tongs to flip them halfway through the cooking process for even browning.

5. Drain and serve: Once the chicken strips are cooked to perfection, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil. Allow them to cool slightly before serving to avoid burning your mouth. Serve the crispy chicken strips hot with your favorite dipping sauce on the side.

Tips for Success

– For an extra crispy coating, you can double-bread the chicken strips. After coating them in the breadcrumbs, dip them back into the beaten eggs and breadcrumbs for a second layer.
– If you prefer a healthier alternative to frying, you can bake the breaded chicken strips in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 20-25 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
– Experiment with different seasonings and spices in the breading mixture to customize the flavor of your crispy chicken strips. Cajun seasoning, Italian herbs, or even grated Parmesan cheese can add a delicious twist.
– To keep the cooked chicken strips warm while you fry the remaining batches, place them on a baking sheet in a preheated oven set to the lowest temperature.


With this easy-to-follow recipe, you can recreate the irresistible taste of crispy chicken strips right in your own kitchen. Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or simply craving a comforting meal, these homemade chicken strips are sure to satisfy.
