We love these Crunchy Spicy Chicken Strips! So tender and so good. Last night was party night on the back porch! The menu was Bonnie's Crunchy Spicy Chicken Strips, carrot and celery sticks dipped in Ranch Dressing and Barbecue Sauce. Bet you can't eat just one. Yum. We also had my famous Margaritas, and yeah, I have a blue ribbon on that one. Enjoy!

How to Make BONNIE'S CRUNCHY SPICY CHICKEN STRIPS

Step-by-Step

  1. Assemble all your ingredients before you begin.
    You will need 3 small bowls and a medium skillet.
    Use boneless, skinless chicken.
    Cut into 1/4 inch strips.
  2. MAKE THE CHICKEN MARINADE
    Place 1/2 cup water, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 teaspoon season salt. Add prepared chicken to the marinade. Let chicken sit one hour.
  3. SEASON THE CHICKEN
    After the chicken has marinated for one hour, remove it and drain in a colander. Place in a small bowl. Add some seasoning to the chicken. First add a tablespoon of Franks hot sauce to the strips and mix it in thoroughly. Lightly salt and pepper the meat, and sprinkle with a little garlic powder. About 1/4 teaspoon of each. We are giving it just a light seasoning, because there is seasoning in the flour mixture, too.
  4. MAKE SEASONED FLOUR
    Meanwhile prepare the seasoned flour. Add 1/2 cup flour a small bowl, and add the 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese from jar, and mix with the spoon. Add 1/2 teaspoon season salt, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon ground dehydrated onion, 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper flakes, and 1/2 teaspoon black coarse pepper. 1 teaspoon chili powder, 1/2 teaspoon paprika. Whisk to combine..
  5. EGGS IN SMALL BOWL
    Add 2 eggs to a small bowl and whisk,
  6. MAKE THE PANKO DREDGE
    Place 1/3 cup butter in skillet over very low heat. When the butter melts, turn off the heat. Add the 2 cups of panko bread crumbs, and 1 teaspoon turmeric. Mix very well with a wooden spoon. Then add the Parmesan cheese. Mix well. Set aside.
  7. Line your bowls up in the order you will be dredging. Assembly is much easier. Starting with the bowl of seasoned flour, then the bowl of beaten eggs, Finally, to dip the chicken strips in the buttered Panko breadcrumbs in the skillet. Transfer each piece of chicken to a foil lined and kitchen sprayed pan.
  8. Dip a chicken strip in the SEASONED FLOUR.
  9. Then dip it in the BEATEN EGGS.
  10. Then dredge it in the skillet of PANKO BREADCRUMBS.
  11. As you dip each piece of chicken, transfer it to the prepared baking pan. Ready to Bake!
    Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven, for15 to 20 minutes, then flip and bake 5 to 10 minutes more. Times are approximate. It should just be golden brown. Don't overcook. This chicken when cooked properly is quite crunchy with a tender and juicy meat.
  12. ...And just a few minutes later. Panko is our favorite breading!
  13. This batch was made with bread crumbs. (We prefer the Panko.)
  14. Enjoy!
