Please check out this quick and easy Recipe from Pennylove, an amazing blog all about healthy, recipes that will impress your hubby, your guests and even yourself! I’ve never made my own crispy, tender chicken strips, but now I just might have to! Here’s the recipe:
I like to use Chicken Tenderloins for this recipe because they are, as their name suggests, tender. However, Chicken Breast cut into 2 inch strips work just as well. I also use Pan Searing Flour because it is already seasoned and gives the chicken a bit of a crispy coating. I have only been able to buy it at Wegmans. So if you do not have it at hand, you can just use regular flour. One other thing I prefer is Garlic Flavored Olive Oil. However, non flavored EVOO (Extra Virgin Olive Oil) works just as well.
1lb Chicken Tenders
2 Tablespoons Pan Searing Flour
1 Teaspoon Paprika
2 Teaspoons Seasonings
1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon EVOO
1 Tablespoon fresh garlic
1 Tablespoon fresh or dried herbs
In a large bowl, lightly season the chicken with your favorite chicken Seasonings (Lemon-pepper, Seasoned Salt or Salt & Pepper) and the dried herbs. Also, add 1teaspoon of the EVOO. Mix everything so that the chicken is evenly coated in the oil & seasoning. Be careful not to over season the meat as the Pan Searing Flour already has seasoning in it. Let the chicken marinate for 15-20 minutes. Place the strips on a large cutting board & lightly coat the chicken with the Pan Searing Flour.
In a large non-stick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon EVOO & add the garlic. Once the oil is hot, place the chicken strips in the skillet. Let the chicken cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature is 165 degrees.
Once done, remove the chicken from the skillet & place on a paper towel lined plated to absorb any excess oil. These strips are great by themselves, or served as the entrée (as shown below) along with your favorite side dishes for dinner. Bon Appetit!
