I’m closing in on 27, and yet I’m convinced that I’ll never get tired of chicken strips, even though I feel like I’m 12 when I eat them. They’re really just so delicious. When I make them at home, I always stick to baking them, to keep them a little bit healthier, but sometimes that can result in not-so-crispy strips.
These are a new favorite in our house, partly because they are really crunchy, and partly because they’re spicy. One of the best combinations! The corn chips here are a perfect exterior to this chicken, and now I kind of want to try making them again with a flavored corn chip. Living on the wild side, huh?
3/4 cup crushed corn chips (like Fritos)
2 tbsp Panko breadcrumbs
1 tbsp flour
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp Mrs. Dash
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp paprika
1 egg, beaten
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
