Crispy Faux Fried Chicken Nuggets Or Strips

A day ago, I took some chicken out of the freezer. I thawed it in the fridge a day. It was still frozen. So I bathed it in a bath of buttermilk and some spices and created something wonderful.

Crispy Faux Fried Chicken Nuggets or Strips

Chicken breast (boneless and skinless) cut into bite size pieces
Lawrys Seasoning salt
ground red pepper

Panko Bread crumbs or crushed crackers
salt and pepper

Put your chicken pieces in a bowl. Sprinkle chicken with the seasonings. Pour enough buttermilk to cover and stir until pieces are bathing in the milk. Cover and put bowl in the refrigerator overnight.

When ready to cook your Crispy Faux Fried Chicken Nuggets or Strips. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Remove chicken from the fridge. On a plate pour a mound of Panko Bread crumbs or crushed crackers. Use a fork and remove a piece of chicken from the buttermilk bath. Coat both sides of chicken in crumbs and place on a baking sheet. Do this to all of your chicken pieces, adding more crumbs as needed to the mound on the plate to coat pieces. Sprinkle the tops of crumbed chicken pieces with a little salt and pepper.

Pop the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 30-45 minutes until pieces of chicken are cooked.

Serve with Seasoned corn and Mashed potatos or baked potatos. Enjoy.
