Prep the Chicken

Start by slicing the chicken breasts into strips that are about a third of an inch wide. This will ensure that your chicken fries cook evenly and have the perfect amount of crunch.

Make the Marinade

Pour buttermilk into a bowl and season with salt, pepper, hot sauce, bouillon powder, onion powder, and garlic powder. This flavorful marinade will give your chicken fries a delicious kick.


Add the chicken strips to the bowl of buttermilk and make sure to coat them well. Refrigerate for about an hour, allowing them to soak up the flavors.

Make Breading

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, herbs, cayenne pepper, white pepper, salt, and bouillon powder. This breading will give your chicken fries the perfect texture and taste.

Bread the Chicken

Remove the marinated chicken from the buttermilk and coat each strip evenly in the flour mixture, then in eggs, and finally, cover them with panko breadcrumbs. This will give your chicken fries a crispy exterior.

Fry Them Up

Heat frying oil to 350℉/177℉ in a heavy-bottom pot and fry the chicken fries in batches for 3-4 minutes each. Once they're done, drain them on paper towels to remove the excess oil.

Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
