  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.

Very good. Customizable easy and delish. Notes on batter frying. let the flour rest in the batter at least 20 minutes in the fridge. Half the comments about bland and floury probably are eliminated by letting it rest - almost any time you add a fat or liquid to flour you want to let it set. (and baking powder, not Soda - PLEASE) MAKER SURE to get the excess batter off, let it drain, shake it...whatever. Batter is not like flour-egg-flour. It'll be too much if you just batter it and drop it into the fryer. If you want season either season the batter (not the dredging flour) or sprinkle you Paul Prudhomme or what have you IMMEDIATELY after it comes out of the oil and no one will say bland again (that way you can also season separately for kids and adults). I used thighs because chix breats have no flavour and it worked fine. If the chicken isn't cooking, wrap it in foil and bake for 5-10'll be just fine. Great and easy recipe for batter fried that can be changed for your taste



The recipe was very easy to follow and was easier to cook. The only problem was that the batter was bland so I had to spice it up a bit with salt, pepper, more beer and garlic powder. I will use this recipe again and try different things with it. Thanks for sharing:)



I like a light batter, and while this one was not quite light enough, I just added a bit more beer to make the batter the consistency I wanted and it worked well. I also added some Montreal STEAK seasoning to my second batch, which brought the flavor of the chicken out.
