One of the only chicken recipes my picky children will eat! Less greasy than fast food, and more tasty!


  1. Slice chicken longwise into six strips per breast.
  2. Put flour and Fish Fri into separate ziploc bags.
  3. Lightly beat egg with 1 Tbs. water.
  4. Shake four chicken strips at a time in the flour, shake off the excess, dip in egg wash, shake off the excess, then shake in Fish Fri.
  5. Heat two inches of oil in a skillet to medium hot.
  6. Fry chicken strips in batches so they do not touch, turning, until they are golden brown.
  7. Drain and serve.
  8. Watch them disappear!

Was at home and didn't have fish fry (or your traditional vegetable for that matter - just olive oil). Since I was using extra virgin olive oil, I substituted italian dressing mix and mixed it into the flour. I also added two scoops of dry non-dairy creamer. I doubled breaded them and fried according to directions.... were divine and almost no grease!

This was great. I wanted to make popcorn chicken, so I cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and it worked out perfect. I made enough at once and then froze it for when the kids want a snack. It is much better than the store bought The fish seasoning was a little to strong by itself, so I added some flour to the mix. That was just my personal taste though. My husband, who likes bite to his food, loved it.
