These were too good to pass up. Even though I am not super thrilled about the mess that frying makes sometimes you just have to do it! :) We all really enjoyed the taste of these and my mother in law even asked me for the recipe. She loves to fry up chicken and was super excited about this quick and easy recipe...
Buttermilk Chicken Fingers
(recipe found at www.cookingmimi.wordpress.com)
1 cup buttermilk
1/8 teaspoon hot sauce
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1 1/2 cups self rising flour (or all purpose with 1 teaspoon salt added)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
oil for frying
Mix together the buttermilk and hot sauce. Pour over chicken in ziploc bag and refrigerate for several hours. In a shallow dish mix together flour and pepper. Heat about 1/4" of oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat until hot but not smoking.
Coat both sides of chicken well in the flour mixture and fry until golden brown and cooked to 165. This will take about 5 minutes per side.
