Cajun Fried Chicken Strips: Do’s, Don’ts And A 5 Min Short Recipe

Are you also a lover of the cajun fried chicken strips? If you are a cajun chicken lover, then you must have water in your mouth, right now. Am I right?

Let me do some astrological Predictions….LOL!

You might have tried to make cajun fried chicken strips at home, but it would have all come out as a disaster.

Then, you must have followed the wrong recipe or have done some modifications to it to make it your kind of dish. No?

What is special about this recipe?

One of the special things about the recipe is the perfection with which it is made. The chicken strips are moist, juicy and crispy. The taste of these chicken strips gets so engrossed in your finger that you may be willing to eat your fingers as well.

Can I eat them plain?

Yes, you can eat them plain by having a little honey mustard for dipping. If you like the fusion, then you can eat cajun chicken along with the cajun chicken pasta. If you want to have something light, then you can have the salads

What if I want to pan fry my strips?

If you want to prepare the cajun fried chicken strips with the pan-frying method, then you have to make sure that your oil is heated to 350 degrees celsius. Throughout the frying process, you need to be focused as you have to keep up with the adjustments of the heating elements.

Please Note:

The elements which you use while working with the glass top cooking stove takes a bit longer to cool.


To maintain the temperature, you can use the thermometer.

Why should we not fry too many items at a single time?

By adding something to the hot oil, we can lower the temperature of the oil. So if you are frying the cajun fried chicken strips in batches, then after frying each batch, you need to reheat the oil.

If you fry too many items at once, then your chicken strips will never have the desired characteristics.

Should we use the market base cajun chicken seasonings?

If you like the handmade flavours, then you can use the seasoning made at home. Or you also have the option of buying it from the market. No?
