For me, this is a dead ringer for fried chicken strips! I love how quick and easy this comes together, and how I don't have to fiddle with frying chicken on the stovetop. And if you're not using parchment paper, YOU ARE A CRAZY PERSON. I despise scrubbing pans so parchment is a life-saver and makes clean-up a breeze!
