These chicken strips are from Cooking Light Magazine's recipe-"Fried Chicken Salad". My kids did not care to much for all of it together as a salad, but we all love the chicken strips. I always double the recipe and freeze half for another time. They are simply delicious. I won't buy another pre-frozen manufactured chicken nugget or strip again.
