This recipe is one of my very favorites for many reasons it is jummy and most important quick and easy, it’s absolutely perfect! moist, juicy, fried chicken strips coated with Cajun spiced bread crumbs….it’s finger licking deliciousness!

You can eat them plain with a little honey mustard for dipping, or you can throw them on top of a cajun chicken pasta. Toss it on top of a salad for a cajun chicken salad for something on the lighter side. These tasty little bites are good so many different ways! Garnish with green onion and lime slices 


Cover the bottom of a large heavy skillet with about ½ inch of oil. Heat oil to 350 degrees (see cooking lesson below).

In a small dredging bowl combine panko bread crumbs with onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, thyme, peppers, paprika, and salt. Small cake pans make great for dredging.
Pour the buttermilk into a small bowl.

Working one at a time, dip the chicken into buttermilk and then into bread crumbs to coat. Place carefully into the hot oil. Cook the chicken in batches as the skillet shouldn't get too crowded.

Cook for 2 to 3 minutes and then flip, cooking for an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Chicken should have a golden brown exterior and should be cooked all the way through.

Remove from skillet and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
