Ingredients

For the Honey Mustard Sauce

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons honey

For the Fried Chicken Strips

  • 2 whole medium-size boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup canola oil amount may vary depending on the size of the skillet used, and number of servings you make

Equipment

  • Medium to Large Size Skillet (skillet size depends on number of servings made)
  • Cooling Rack (small to medium size)

Instructions

Prep Before Making the Chicken:

  • Rack for the Cooked Chicken - Set a wire cooking rack (small to medium size) on top of a large plate. Set aside.
    The fried chicken strips will be transferred from the skillet onto this rack to drain off any excess oil.
  • Flour - In a medium size shallow bowl, add the flour. Set aside.
  • Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce - In a small bowl, add mustard and honey. Whisk together until incorporated. Set aside.

For the Fried Chicken Strips:

  • Place the chicken on a large plate or a cutting board that's used for meat only.
  • Cut the chicken breast widthwise on a diagonal into 4 evenly sized pieces. To all sides of the cut pieces of chicken evenly add salt and pepper.
  • To the bowl with the flour, add each piece of chicken. Dredge the chicken in the flour so that its evenly coated on all sides.
    Set aside for a moment.
  • To a large skillet, add canola oil. Heat the skillet on medium heat. Add a pinch of flour to the oil.
    When the flour in the pan starts to bubble, using cooking tongs, carefully add the cut pieces of chicken to the pan.
  • When the bottom sides of the chicken turn a golden color, using tongs, carefully turn them over.
  • As the bottom side of each piece of chicken turns a golden color, continue to carefully turn the pieces over until all sides are golden brown.
  • When the chicken is golden brown on all sides, and it's thoroughly cooked (about 15 to 20 minutes depending on the number of servings made), turn off the heat.
    Using cooking tongs, carefully transfer the chicken from the skillet onto a cooking rack (that's placed on a large plate).
  • While the chicken sets on the rack to drain off any excess oil (for about 2 minutes), stir the honey mustard sauce one last time just before transferring it into small personal-size dipping bowls.
  • Serve the fried chicken strips warm with honey mustard dipping sauce.

Notes

TIP:

  1. While the chicken sets on the rack to drain off any excess oil (for about 2 minutes), stir the honey mustard sauce one last time just before transferring it into small personal-size dipping bowls.
