Chicken Strips

I needed chicken strips for an appetizer I was making for Valentines day, and after emptying the freezer and only finding a bag of dinosaur chicken nuggets that the daycare kids eat, I figured I had better make some myself.

I decided on a Pioneer Woman recipe, mostly because it was the first one I looked at and I had a lot to do for Valentines day and I liked that she drizzled buttermilk into the flour to create extra crunchy bits on the chicken.

1 package of chicken tenders
1 1/2 cups flour
3 tsp seasoned salt
vegetable oil for frying

Place chicken in a large bowl and cover with buttermilk.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

In a large bowl, add the flour and the seasoned salt.  Drizzle in about a half cup of buttermilk, mixing with a fork to create clumps in the flour.

Coat the chicken strips in the flour and fry in the hot oil until golden and crispy on both sides.
