Nigella's Ritzy Chicken Strips.. An Easy Lunch or Dinner..

This practically took minutes to prepare and a few more minutes to cook. But needs a couple of days for it to be ready, so prepare them a day in advance. If you have kids, they will love this recipe and grownups do too! I tried this Nigella Lawson easy breezy recipe accompanied by homemade Honey Mustard Sauce.. tastes sooo good!


2 Packets of boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup buttermilk (Leban) - I prefer KDD because it's think and creamy
20 pieces of Ritz cracker crushed to form bread crumbs


. Put the chicken breasts into a freezer bag flat.
. Bash them gently with a rolling pin until the chicken is quite thin.
. Once done, take them out of the bag and slice them.
. In a bowl, place the butter milk and chicken and leave then in the fridge to marinade for 24 hours atleast.
. When ready to cook, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven.
. Take the bread crumbs and place them in a shallow dish to coat the chicken.
. Take the chicken out of the fridge, take each piece, shake off the excess buttermilk and dip them in the crumbs.
. Coat them well and lay them on the baking sheet, bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. and Voila !!!!

Dinner is served! ... or lunch ;)

Hello الشارقه

Thanks for passing through.. believe it or not this recipe requires no spices at all. The flavors in those crackers are enough in terms of saltiness.

It's a great recipe for kids, it's fast and yummy.

As for sticking, I use a silicon pad on top of a roasting tray and that way nothing sticks. you can always use an oil spray or anything that prevents them from sticking :)

I have tried chicken strips with kitco but never with buttermilk (leban) it makes the flavor intense and a little sour.. Yum Yum

Hope you're kids enjoy and I hope you do too.

Bon Appétit!
