In my next cookbook I want to focus on foods that will be quick, easy, budget & kid friendly (Lil Diva approved)! This recipe is all of those things! And it’s Keto Friendly to boot! I would make these along with wings for your next Super Bowl party, you can just double the recipe for the sauces and use it to dip your wings and the chicken fries. Let’s cook!
- 2-3 Chicken breasts cut into thin strips
- 1 to 1 1/2 cups of vegetable and canola oil
- Seasoning of choice – I used dry ranch dressing mix, Tony’s creole seasoning and garlic and onion powder
- 2 sticks of salted butter
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- Juice of 1 lemon, as well as zest
- 2 teaspoons of cracked black pepper, divided
- 1/2 teaspoon of lemon pepper seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt
- Grated Parmesan cheese
Pre-heat oven and 350 degrees and heat oil in skillet. I use an electric skillet that was under $20 bucks from Walmart and I only use it for frying. I love it because you can set the temperature so you know what you’re cooking at. Season the chicken. Don’t go heavy on the seasoning, if you just use salt and pepper that’s fine because you will be coating the chicken in sauce. Drop chicken in oil. Watch closely, the chicken is thin and cooks up quickly.
While cooking melt butter in microwave for about a minute. Separate butter in two bowls big enough for the chicken to sit in. Add minced garlic and garlic salt to one bowl and the lemon juice, zest, 1 tsp of black pepper and the lemon pepper seasoning to the other. Once chicken is done drain on paper towel for 1-2 minutes and then add to sauces. Mix chicken in sauces and let sit for 3-5 minutes.
Then add to a cookie sheet. Repeat til all chicken is coated in the sauce. Sprinkle garlic parmesan chicken with grated parmesan and the lemon pepper chicken with the other teaspoon of cracked black pepper. Bake in oven for 3-5 minutes, we just want to bake the sauce in the chicken really well.
Enjoy with ranch or blue cheese dressing and carrots & celery sticks.
