Posted in : Chicken on by : Daphne


3 lbs skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into strips3 eggs1 cup water1/2 cup milk2 tbs salt2 tbs black pepper6 cups all-purpose flour1/4 cup salt5 tsp black pepper2 tbs minced garlic2 tbs dry mesquite flavored seasoning mix4 cups oil for frying, or as needed1 tsp butter1 (12 oz) bottle barbecue sauce


In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, water, milk, 2 tablespoons salt, and 2 tablespoons pepper with a fork until smooth. In another large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/4 cup salt, 5 teaspoons pepper, garlic, and mesquite seasoning.
Fill a large heavy skillet or wok halfway full with oil. Heat to 365F (180C). Use a fork to pick up one chicken strip at a time, and dip it into the egg mixture, then into the flour mixture, back into the egg mixture, and into the flour mixture again. Place coated strips into the hot oil to fry. Do not over crowd, just cook in batches. Once chicken is browned on one side, flip over, and brown on the other side.
Preheat the oven to 300F (150C). Butter one 12×20 inch glass baking dish, or two 9×13 inch baking dishes. Pour enough barbeque sauce into the dish to coat the bottom. Arrange fried chicken strips in rows in the prepared dish. Pour remaining sauce over the top.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until the sauce is caramelized onto the chicken.
