Carmen Cervantes, mother of StMU student Bryann Cervantes, prepares her favorite dish Chicken Strips and tells us a little bit more about how she fell in love with cooking and offers some tips.

Ingredients

  • 3 Chicken Breasts (bone-in)
  • 3 Eggs
  • 2 packs of saltine crackers
  • ¾ Teaspoon of Chicken Flavored Seasoning
  • 1 Cup of Olive Oil
  • ¼ Teaspoon of Table Salt (or to your liking)
  • ½ Teaspoon of Black Pepper (or to your liking)

Directions
Use roller to grind crackers into crumbly bits in a Ziploc bag. Transfer the crushed crackers to a bowl, and add salt, pepper, and the chicken seasoning then mix to distribute seasonings evenly. Cut the chicken breasts into thin chicken strips and afterwards, preheat a pan with the olive oil on medium heat for 5 minutes. In a separate bowl whisk the eggs until they are completely liquid and then change the pan heat to low after 5 minutes.

Begin the cooking process by covering one entire chicken strip with a thin layer of the whisked eggs, and then dip the strip into the cracker crumbs bowl covering it entirely. Then lay the covered chicken strip in the pan, submerging it completely in the olive oil and on both sides until a golden-brown outer color is achieved. Place the finished golden-brown chicken strip in a container to serve, lined with napkins to absorb excess grease. Repeat the process for all 15-20 chicken strips and serve warm.
