Need an easy chicken recipe for a great dinner? Crispy Buttermilk Chicken Strips are an easy family dinner idea that everyone loves. Simple, easy, delicious
One of my all time favorite dinner recipes is chicken strips. But I have found that not all chicken strips are created equal. For me, they MUST be super crispy & yet remain juicy on the inside. The only real way to do this is with the deep fryer. So once in a great while we pull it out & whip up some of these delicious buttermilk chicken strips & I swoon with every bite. I always vow to make them more often- then I wash & tuck the deep fryer away & forget what I said. Then when we start inching ever so close to fall & football – I remember & out it comes to make some more of these delicious strips.
I’m super excited too, because today I’m also sharing this recipe with my dear friend (& party co-host) Emily of Nap-Time Creations. This is the second or third year I have joined her for her Summer Fun Series. There are SO MANY fabulous ideas being shared – you have to check it out.
