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?

A step-by-step recipe to make the immensely flavorful fried chicken

Whenever we try our hands-on cooking either the fried chicken and the cajun chicken, we are often afraid of wasting the chicken pieces since we are not sure whether we will be able to come up with the right flavours and techniques. Here in this blog, we are going to tell you the step-by-step recipe for making the fried chicken:

Step One: Choose the right cuts

The first step is to start with the choice of the chicken. Usually, people stick with dark meat. Dark meat is one of the most flavourful kinds of milk.

Make sure that you are flattening the chicken.

Step Two: Seasoning

In this step, the chicken is supposed to get seasoned. As far as the seasonings are concerned, you are supposed to put the following in the chicken:

  • Kosher Salt

  • Black Pepper

  • Garlic Powder

  • Herbs and spices

  • Mustard Powder

  • Paprika

  • Chilli Powder

  • Cumin Powder

  • Cayenne Powder

Step Three: Seasoning of the flour

As far as step three is concerned, then it involves dredging the chicken in the flour. But make sure, the flour in which you are dredging the chicken should be properly seasoned with the different herbs and spices.

Step Four: Let it rest

Sometimes doing nothing means doing everything. Once you have coated the chicken in the herbs and spices, then let it rest for a few minutes.

Step Five: Fry the chicken

After the chicken has rested for a few hours, then it is time for you to fry the chicken. Take a deep bottomed vessel and put some oil in it (Preferable: fill the oil up to ½ inches).

Note: It is the cast iron skillet that is considered ideal for frying the chicken.

Step Seven: Continue With frying

Try to flip the chicken once one side of the chicken is nicely fried. It approximately takes 7 to 10 minutes to fry one side of the chicken nicely.

Step Eight: Put the fried chicken on the wired rack

In this step, you need to put the fried pieces of the chicken in the wired rack. The main benefit of doing that is the chicken will get o drain nicely, so that your taste buds just only have to taste the fried and crusty version of the chicken and not the soggy one which is surrounded by an oily layer.
