Orange Panko Chicken Strips
- 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 packet Amazing TasteÂ® Poultry Seasoning
- 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1/3 cup fresh orange juice
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest, divided
- 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
- Extra-virgin olive oil
- Sea salt
- Trim any extra fat from the chicken breast halves. Rinse the chicken with water and then pat dry with a paper towel. Cut the chicken breasts lengthwise into 1/4-inch-thick strips. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine the poultry seasoning, extra-virgin olive oil, orange juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of the grated orange zest. Whisk until well-incorporated.
- Place the chicken strips in the bowl and toss gently with your fingers to coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pour the bread crumbs onto a large plate and combine with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon of grated orange zest, making sure that the zest is distributed as evenly as possibly.
- Remove the chicken strips from the refrigerator.
- Take a chicken strip and allow the extra marinade to drip off and back into the bowl before dredging it in the bread crumbs. Place the breaded chicken strip on a clean plate to rest. Repeat this process until all of the chicken strips have been breaded. Place the plate of chicken strips in the refrigerator for 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, pour enough olive oil into a large skillet until there is about 1/4-inch of oil in the pan. Heave over medium-high heat.
- Remove the chicken strips from the refrigerator. Working in batches, place chicken strips carefully into the pan and fry for about 2 minutes. Carefully turn the chicken and cook for about 1 minute more. Remove from the pan and allow to drain on a paper-towel-lined plate.
- While the chicken strips are still hot, sprinkle with a bit of sea salt and serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
