These are even good cold. I like to dip into sweet sour or BBQ sauce while "munching".


  • Chicken tenders, or boneless, skinless breasts cut into 1/2-3/4" strips
  • Buttermilk, to cover
  • Self-rising flour, for dredging
  • Chili powder, cayenne, lemon pepper, or other spices of your choice


Place chicken strips in zip-type bag and cover with buttermilk (low-fat is fine). Let marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight if desired. Remove, shake off excess buttermilk and drop in your seasoned flour. Deep fry for 3-4 minutes a few pieces at a time. Keep hot in 250 oven till all pieces are cooked.
