"The Colonel used to sell chicken nuggets that were tasty but he thought 'Why not prepare fresh chicken strips of all white meat?' and that is how the Colonel's Crispy Strips were born. You will notice it is the same as the Extra Crispy."

"WOW! This is our latest & GREATEST chicken strip recipe. Seasonings are RIGHT ON! I did use recipe #75408 marinade for about 2-3 hours only. Perfect! Thank you, JustaQT."
"Five thumbs up...all around this kitchen table,when I asked the kids what they thought of these!!I didn't marinade the chicken as I didn't have time.I used a fork in which to spear the strips and to transfer them back and forth between the egg/milk mixture and the flour mixture.When I had completed the dipping process,I then just pushed the strip off the fork onto waxed paper in which I let them sit for 20 minutes before frying them.The sitting of the strips helps the dough to set in which to ensure a crispier coating.Thanks for a great recipe!!Will definately make again! "
"YUMMM-E!!!!! Perfect for the picky eaters at our 4th of July celebration....used recommended marinade for the suggested time. I omitted the msg and as noted in previous reviews used adobo, and used garlic powder with parsley. Definately a KEEPER!!!!!! Thanks for the post."
"Very good! they came out crispy, moist and golden brown, also had a lot of flavor thanks for the recipe."
"Made this as part of my finger food buffet for one of the monthly groups I host, & served it with a homemade chutney/dip! And, although I might play around with the recipe from time to time (maybe, maybe not!), I did make it as given & everyone loved it! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in I Recommend recipe tag]"
"This is very good but I have to say it did not taste like KFC's chicken. Next time I make this though I will omit the salt as the MSG made it salty enough. I do not want to omit the MSG however as this is what brings out the flavor of everything. Thanks for posting this recipe."
"I made this recipe for mine and SO's Dinner on 9/18/09. Since there was just the two of us this is how it was made,I used 3 chicken breast halves cut into strips. For the marinade Recipe#88939 was used. Then 1 egg, 3/4 cup of milk was used for the wash. For the coating, 1 1/4 cup of flour was used with the full amount of seasonings ( Since I have a bad reaction to MSG it was left out ).Other than the changes that I made, the recipe was made as it was written. If this is made again, I won't "double dip " since alot of the coating fell off while I was frying it. I don't know if leaving out the MSG affected the taste, but to us this tasted nothing like KFC chicken strips. But it was very good as it was. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) ""
"This really does tast like KFC original recipe! I didn't marinate because I already started the recipe before I saw that step. I only used 4 large chicken breast, and that was enough to use all the breading. Very tasty! Thanks!"
"Great chicken! I added some cayenne pepper to the coating mixture for some extra kick. I've made this a few times, and sometimes for extra crunch I dip the chicken in breadcrumbs first, before dipping into the coating."
"yum! u should also add some caynne pepper and cloves to the spices...maybe a touch of cinnamon to"
"this was DELICIOUS! it was sooooo flavorful. very close to kfc. my hubby thought it was chicken fried steak cut into bite size pieces so i guess to him it didn't taste like kfc but it doesn't matter cuz he LOVED it. it's even going to his favorites file which is pretty rare. he kinda complained it was a little salty so next time i'll cut back on the salt for the coating but i thought it was perfect as is. thank you for sharing!"
"These were just so great tasting and perfect! We all enjoyed these very much. They were so tender on the inside and crispy on the outside. Thanks for a keeper JustaQT...."
"I love chicken fingers and now I can make them at home. This was easy and tasty. Frying is not something you want to do nightly but when you gotta have it, try this recipe. Excellent!"
"Amazing - simply amazing. These were crispy and beautifully flavored. I thought I sliced my chicken thin enough but it was still a little too thick. Slice the chicken very thin. I've never had such crispy yummy homemade strips. "
"This turned out very good. I did half the recipe because 6 chicken breasts seemed like alot. I recommend slicing the chicken very thin to aid in even cooking. I also used the KFC Marinade before using this recipe to fry them. I found that 3 breasts were the perfect amount for a family of four."
"These were crispy and delicious! I cut the recipe in half to give it a try and my results were great. We really enjoyed them. Not quite the taste of KFC but close. They still were delicious and easy to make. Thanks for sharing your recipe for these crispy strips!"
"Thank you for a great, authentic and EASY recipe. I made it for the hubby and he really enjoyed it. What I liked most was that the coating stays crisp for quite a while. I did not use it on strips, but on drumsticks and thighs and it came out beautiful. I also used it on my veggies - and it was fine."
