1 to 2 cups vegetable oil

Bread crumb mixture:

3 to 4 cups bread crumbs

1 tablespoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon onion powder

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 tablespoon white pepper

1/2 tablespoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon thyme

4 to 6 boneless chicken breasts

  3. Combine the bread crumbs, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, white pepper, cayenne pepper and thyme in a large bowl. Set aside.
  4. Slice the chicken into 1/2-inch strips. Don't forget to remove the cartilage from center of breast. Place the flour and eggs into separate bowls. Cover each strip evenly in flour, then submerge strips in the eggs, to coat well. Let excess egg drip off, and then coat with the bread crumb mixture. Fry strips in hot oil until golden brown. Remove from fryer, drain on paper towels and serve.
