Very good, tasty and not greasy. I like to add 1/2 tsp of garlic and just a touch more salt to the recipe

Pretty good base recipe, but as noted before needs some adjustment to shine. Marinating the chicken in buttermilk and hot sauce, and upping the hot sauce levels are a must. I am not a lover of flaming hot foods, but i put 3x the called for amount of hot sauce and it was a perfect heat level. You definitely need some extra oil in your pan, but not a great deal more. You have to keep an eye on the cooking, and I cooked mine on medium low, and it came out great. The only change I will make next time is using a light egg wash as a binder as the crust wanted to slide off the chicken after cooking.

This was absolutely awful. Normally I love recipes on here but these were terrible. I cooked on medium high heat and the outsides were burnt and the crust was gooey, not crisp at all. The flavor was bland and I even added extra hot sauce after reading other reviews. The dressing was also nasty.Way too much mayo flavor. This was a horrible disappointment.

Delicious! My husband and I both loved it. It was simple to make. I only had full fat mayo and the dressing was a bit rich so I will definitely use lower fat mayo next time. I also marinated the chicken in the buttermilk..

We enjoyed the chicken strips a lot! I read through a lot of the reviews, so I marinated the chicken in the buttermilk and hot sauce before cooking it. I needed A LOT more oil - actually about 3 tbsp more than the recipe called for. We have a lot of left over dipping sauce that we plan to use in wraps later this week! All my husband said as a complaint is that he wished I had made more :)

Medium high heat had the outside a little burnt, unfortunately. Needed a bit more crispness, and I found that I needed more oil than called for. I did not use the dressing (didn't have the ingredients to do so), but the chicken strips definitely satisfied my craving for fried chicken. Would make again.
