Italian Chicken Strips

These Italian Chicken Strips are a meal my kids just love! Plus, I love knowing that we are eating real chicken and not some kind of weird science experiment and conglomeration! Sorry, homemade is always better quality and better tasting in my opinion!

We eat about half of this recipe for dinner one night and the rest gets put in the freezer for another night! Is there anything better than getting 2 (or more) meals while doing the "work" for one?!

This recipe is easy to double too - just use the full containers of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese - and double the remaining ingredients! My family of 7 can easily get 4-5 meals out of 6 pounds of chicken strips! 

These strips are super simple to make and your family will love them! Enjoy!

Printable recipe
Yield: 3 lbs. of chicken strips or 10-12 servings

1 cup Italian-style dry bread crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. garlic salt
6 eggs
¼ cup water
3 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½-in. strips
Vegetable oil, for deep-fat frying

In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat about 1-in. of oil to 375°F. 

In a medium bowl or pie plate, combine the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, and garlic salt. 

In a pie plate, beat the eggs and water. 

Dip the chicken strips into the egg mixture, then shake into the crumb mixture, coating well. 

Fry the chicken in batches until golden brown and cooked through, turning to cook all sides if necessary. Drain on paper towels. 

Serve immediately or cool and freeze for up to 3 months.

To use frozen chicken strips: Bake on an ungreased baking sheet at 350°F. for 15-20 minutes or until heated through.

  13. Yea! Healthier chicken nuggets and they sound yummy, too. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday.

  14. Hi Jamie, This is a great dish for the kids, but I usually have my sous chef-sister-in-law do all the frying for these. I'll see if I can send her your way to help you once in a while. Kidding aside, our kids love these and thank you for sharing this with Foodie Friends Friday chicken recipes this week. I too make a double batch, it's definitely easier in the long run.

    Have a great week,

  15. I was looking for a recipe for chicken fingers and landed on yours Jamie! My son is really going to love this one! Seems like I can only make him eat chicken fingers and fish least I try to keep them baked and as natural as possible. Thanks for sharing the recipe. BTW did you change cameras or something? your recipes look really bright and pretty..(not like they were not before) but I've noticed something different in them :) Just curious, It's a good change!

    1. Thanks so much, Lizy! I hope your son enjoys this version! Believe it or not, this picture was taken with a point and shoot camera! I honestly believe the sunshine in Arizona has made a huge difference! lol. I also learned a few editing techniques that I think makes them a little better :) Thanks so much for stopping by and the huge compliment!


I love reading your comments. Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond. :)
