INGREDIENTS - CHICKEN STRIPS:
½ cup pickle juice
½ cup whole milk
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon onion powder
16 chicken tenderloins, about 1 3/4 pounds
6 cups peanut oil
8 pickle chips from 1 jar pickle chips (16 oz)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1⁄4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons chili powder
In a medium bowl whisk together wet ingredients, add chicken, making sure to coat evenly. Allow chicken to marinate for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, in a medium-sized pot, over medium-high, heat oil to 325 degrees F While oil heats, in a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.
Reserving the marinade, remove the chicken to a plate. Whisk the egg into the marinade. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture, one piece at a time, shaking off excess egg mixture. Dredge chicken pieces in the flour mix, making sure to coat evenly on both sides. Repeat the breading process (egg mixture to flour mix) one more time, set chicken aside. Line a baking sheet with paper towels.
Once the oil is heated, cook chicken until golden brown on each side and opaque in the center, about 2 to 3 minutes. Place cooked chicken on the prepared baking sheet to drain. voilá! Serve with Chick-fil-A sauce.
