Juicy Lemon Peppered Chicken Strips

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Delete Account

This is one sure way to ensure juicy chicken while obtaining lots of flavor. A meat injector will be needed, I got mine at Wal Mart for a couple bucks. Best served with white pepper/buttered rice.

This was certainly a new way for me to prepare chicken strips, but very flavorful, too! Yet another great way t enjoy the good ol' chicken breast! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
