How to Make It

Step 1

Cut each chicken breast into 3- x 1-inch strips, and set aside.

Step 2

Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a large shallow dish.

Step 3

Whisk together buttermilk, 3/4 cup barbecue sauce, and eggs in a bowl. Dredge chicken pieces in flour mixture; dip in buttermilk mixture, and dredge again in flour mixture. (If flour gets gummy, just press into chicken pieces.)

Step 4

Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 inches in a deep skillet or Dutch oven; heat to 360°.

Step 5

Fry chicken, in batches, 5 to 7 minutes or until golden. Drain on wire racks over paper towels. Serve with extra barbecue sauce.

Step 6

Barbecue-Battered Pork Chops: Substitute 3 pounds boneless breakfast pork chops for chicken, and proceed as directed. For a delicious serving idea, serve cooked chops in biscuits.
