Jalapeno Coated Fried Chicken Fingers
This one goes out to my granddaughter and her boyfriend who both like it hot and I mean this in more ways than one as we have another great grand-baby on the way!
I had bought some crispy jalapeno strips from Winn Dixie that had gotten a little stale as both Kenny and I found them a little too hot to eat just more than one or two at a time which lead them to go a little on the way side and the oops side, hence this idea. I am not going to write this out in recipe form like I usually do as it is a no brainer and just another different coating for fried chicken.
I took the jalapeno strips, put them in my food chopper, and chopped them up as fine as I could. Cut my chicken breasts into strips, dipped them into an egg wash, and then coated them with the chopped jalapeno strips. Then we go into either a deep fryer or cast iron frying pan on the stove and cook until golden brown and done. For this one, I used my cast iron and they came out wonderful.
Kenny was not too fond of this idea because they did not suit us that well straight out of the bag and I did promise to make some of the chicken plain, but after all was said and done, he was a happy camper again even with the jalapeno coating! Will he ever learn to trust me, ha ha? Served them up with some country corn bread and bacon wrapped tater tots, guess that’s why he was so happy!
