The Colonel used to sell chicken nuggets that were tasty but he thought why not prepare fresh chicken strips of all white meat and that is how the Colonel’s Crispy Strips were born. Extra crispy with the ultimate in crunch. This recipe is perfect for chicken tenders that are increasingly popular sold at Costco and other stores.

The Colonel has on occasion sold Hot and Spicy Strips that run for short promotions. The difference is the second dip, it is dipped into hot sauce then breaded again and then fried, just like the original crispy strips. For the barbecue strips make the strips the original way and then dip into the Honey Barbecue Dipping Sauce.
