Some of the things that make for the best restaurant chicken strips include:
High-quality ingredients: The chicken should be fresh, boneless, skinless, and cut against the grain. The breading should be made with fresh herbs and spices, and the oil used for frying should be of high quality.
Proper cooking technique: The chicken should be marinated to tenderize it and give it flavor. It should then be double-dredged in flour and egg before being fried. The oil should be at the correct temperature (350-375 degrees Fahrenheit) to ensure that the chicken cooks evenly and doesn't become overcooked.
Creative toppings and sauces: Chicken strips are often served with unique toppings and sauces that elevate them to the next level. Some popular toppings include hot sauce, ranch dressing, honey mustard, and barbecue sauce. Other restaurants may offer more creative toppings such as buffalo sauce, bleu cheese dressing, or teriyaki sauce.
Don't be afraid to try chicken strips from different restaurants. You may be surprised to find that you prefer the chicken strips from a small, local restaurant over the chicken strips from a popular chain restaurant.
