Entree: Ree's Chicken Strips

If you celebrate holidays by making tons of food, you may be sick of cooking after all the holidays in December and the calendar New Year. If so, these chicken strips are the sort of easy dinner that is perfect in the spell after the holidays. By the title, you can see these come from the Pioneer Woman.


1 package Chicken Breasts, Cut Into Strips (sometimes Called "tenders" Or "strips")
1-1/2 cup Flour
2 teaspoons (to 3 Teaspoons) Lawry's Seasoning Salt (or Spices Of Your Choosing)
Vegetable Oil


  1. Start by rinsing and drying your chicken strips. Next, in a bowl submerge the chicken strips in buttermilk for 15 to 20 minutes (or longer if you’d like).
  2. In another bowl combine about 1 ½ cups flour and 2 to 3 teaspoons of Lawry’s Seasoning Salt (or other seasonings if you prefer). Mix this together well. Next, add about ¼ to ½ cup of buttermilk into the flour mixture and stir lightly with a fork as you add it.
  3. Heat about 1 inch of vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-low to medium heat.
  4. Remove a few of the buttermilk-soaked strips and place them in the flour mixture, turning them over to coat them thoroughly. Place them on a plate. Continue coating chicken strips until they are all ready to cook.
  5. When the oil is sufficiently heated, begin cooking the strips a few at a time. Cook them for about a minute and a half or so on each side. When golden and crispy, remove them to a paper towel-lined plate.
