Baked Chicken Strips

Hi y’all! Last night, I decided we would have some homemade chicken strips. The kids love ’em, but we always buy them from a restaurant, and I wanted to give them something that we knew exactly what ingredients were in them.

I’ve never been a huge fan of chicken nuggets and chicken strips, but let me tell you, when these were cooked up and ready to go last night, I kept asking the kids if they were going to eat all of their chicken. They. Were. Delicious.

Buttermilk is a southern staple. Southerners always have some in their fridge at all times. It adds so much flavor, creaminess, and depth to a meal. And that’s exactly what it did with the chicken strips last night.

How do you make homemade chicken strips?

  1. Add the grated parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs together in a bowl.
  2. In another bowl add the dijon mustard, mayonnaise, salt, pepper, flour, and buttermilk. Mix well.
  3. Dip the chicken strips into the buttermilk mixture and then into the Panko bread crumbs. Set on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake for 45-minutes or until chicken reaches 165-degrees.
  5. Dip in your favorite sauce.

Recipe and printable instructions listed below.

Add the butter to the saucepan and let it melt. Next, add the Panko bread crumbs. Watch them closely as they like to toast fast. 

I like to toast them a little before I bread the chicken because I think it adds a little crunch factor. 

After you toast them a little, add them to a bowl and set them aside. (Toasting the Panko breadcrumbs is optional).

Hi Stella!

You can use Greek yogurt, avocado, olive oil, pesto, or cottage cheese! Let me know if it turns out if you use one of these. I think the Greek yogurt or pesto sounds good.

Have a good day!
