This batter makes for the *best* crispiest chicken strips, the cayenne is only optional I like to add in for a heat, you may adjust the amount --- use only club soda for this not 7-up --- this may also be used successfully with pieces of meaty fish :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Lightly coat chicken with flour (this will help the batter stick) let dry 5-10 minutes.
  2. Mix together pancake mix, club soda and seasonings.
  3. Deep fry in 425 degree oil about 6-8 minutes, or until cooked thoroughly.
  4. Delicious!

I don't often make fried food, so it's a rare treat around my house. The family enjoyed them. Next time I will half the recipe as we have lots of left chicken tenders and only used up half of the batter.
