Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • Chicken breast – 2, boneless and skinless
  • Garlic powder – 2 tsp
  • Bread crumbs – ¾ cup
  • Fresh rosemary – 2 tbsp, chopped
  • Fresh thyme – 1 tbsp
  • Egg – 2
  • All-purpose flour – ¾ cup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken breasts. Cut them into thin long strips. Two medium sized chicken breasts should yield about 16 to 18 strips.
  2. Season the chicken strips with salt and pepper on both side. Add garlic powder and rub it on all sides of the strips.
  3. Take the breadcrumbs on a shallow dish. Add chopped rosemary and thyme to the breadcrumbs and mix well.
  4. In another shallow dish, break and beat the eggs lightly.
  5. In a third shallow dish, take the all-purpose flour.
  6. Heat enough oil in a skillet for deep frying the chicken strips. Let the oil become smoking hot, then lower the temperature and let it cool down a bit.
  7. Take one chicken strip at a time, dredge it in the flour on all sides, lift it up and shake off the excess.
  8. Then dip the dredged strip into the beaten egg, lift it up and let the excess drip off.
  9. Finally, coat the chicken strip with the breadcrumb mixture all over ensuring it is completely covered.
  10. Tip in the breaded chicken strips into the hot oil and fry them on medium-high heat until golden brown on all sides. This would take about 2 minutes each side depending on how hot the oil is. Chicken breast cooks very fast so there is no chance of raw chicken.
  11. Take the fried chicken strips out and place on a plate lined with absorbent kitchen towel to soak up any excess oil.
  12. Serve the crispy fried chicken strips with ketchup. Enjoy!
