  1. Rinse chicken, and slice into 1 inch strips. In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup flour, and baking powder. Mix in the eggs and beer.
  2. Heat oil in a deep heavy skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. Place remaining 1/2 cup flour in a small bowl. Coat chicken strips in flour, then dip floured strips into the batter. Fry a few at a time in hot oil, turning once, until coating is golden brown on both sides. Remove, and keep warm until serving.

I took the advice of other reviewers and added seasoning. I added Cajun seasoning to both the batter and to the flour mixture. They were really really good. I made these for my picky kids and th...

This recipe was not at all what I thought it would be. It did not turn out crispy. It was more like soft bread. It turned out to be a wonderful golden color making you think it would be nice a...

I used this batter for shrimp in my Fry Daddy with the additions of garlic and onion powders and cayenne pepper. A nice Asian dipping sauce helped to make this a great appetizer! Thanks Nathan!
