Pioneer Woman's Homemade Chicken Strips

This is a "copycat recipe" for sure. I love Pioneer Woman's recipes and have made many of them. I haven't posted all of the ones I've used, but I use this blog as my portable recipe box..... So this recipe must be on here! They were so good. So easy. And a super hit!

1 pkg chicken strips (I used tenderloins and cut them into strips)
Buttermilk (can use egg, milk, cream)
1 1/2 cup flour
2 1/2 tsp Lawry's seasoning salt
Vegetable oil

In a frying pan or skillet, pour enough oil so there is about 1 inch of oil. Preheat on medium heat.
If using tenders or strips, place them in a bowl with desired liquid (buttermilk, cream, milk, or egg). If using tenderloins or breasts, cut them into thin strips and proceed in the same step. Allow chicken to sit in liquid for at least 20 minutes. I didn't have buttermilk on hand (which is what Pioneer Woman suggests), but the cream worked well for me, too.
In a bowl, mix flour and seasoning. Carefully drizzle about 1/4+ cup of liquid, while gently stirring with a fork. This will create little crumbles of crunchy goodness later.
When oil is sufficiently hot, take a pieces at a time out of the liquid and roll chicken around in the flour mixture.Place carefully into oil. Cook until brown on each side. They don't take long at all.As each strip gets done, place on paper towl to cool.

Serve as an appetizer, main dish, on salad, in a wrap, or just for a snack!

Baked Parmesan Cottage Potatoes

4 large potatoes, cut into large chunks
2 Tbsp melted butter (for healthier option, do olive oil instead. Flavor is great, too!)
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, the powdered stuff
1/2 tsp (or more if you'd like) garlic salt

Cut up potatoes and toss with melted butter in a large bowl. Sprinkle with garlic salt and stir to coat. Sprinkle parmesan all over and stir quickly to coat then pour onto a cookie sheet.
Spread them out so they're mostly on the cookie sheet and not completely piled on top of one another.See that yummy parmesan goodness!?Bake at 450 for 30-35 minutes, checking with a fork to test for tenderness.
Serve with desired main dish. We've had them with beef, chicken, ham... you name it. And they're a hit everytime!!!

Note: These will be "crusted" on the bottoms. They're NOT burnt. It's wonderful parmesan goodness!
