Chicken Fries

These are almost like fast-food chicken fingers, but even better because they’re homemade.

Serves: 4Hands-on: 20 minutesTotal: 20 minutesDifficulty: Easy

Serves: 4


  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1⁄2 cup seasoned fish-fry breading mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbsp. water
  • 2 cups vegetable oil


  • Butterfly the chicken breasts. Cut them down the middle to separate the breast halves. Cut into the shape of French fries with meat scissors or a knife.
  • Put the flour and breading mix into 2 separate zip-top plastic bags. In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg with the water.
  • Place 4 chicken fries at a time into the flour bag. Shake off the excess flour.
  • Dip them into the egg wash, shake off the excess, then shake in the breading mix. Place each breaded chicken piece on a plate.
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the chicken fries in batches so they do not touch, turning often, until golden brown (about 4 to 5 minutes). Drain on paper towels.
