  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional, for a spicy kick)
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Vegetable oil, for frying


  1. Start by cutting the chicken breasts into thin strips, about 1/2 inch wide.
  2. In a shallow bowl, mix together the flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper (if using).
  3. Pour the buttermilk into another shallow bowl.
  4. Dip each chicken strip into the buttermilk, allowing any excess to drip off.
  5. Coat the chicken strip in the flour mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating.
  6. Place the coated chicken strips on a plate or baking sheet.
  7. In a large skillet, heat enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom of the pan over medium-high heat.
  8. Carefully place the coated chicken strips into the hot oil, making sure not to overcrowd the pan.
  9. Cook the chicken strips for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
  10. Remove the chicken strips from the skillet and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
  11. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken strips.
