And best part, all you need to get this flavour is coat your chicken. For my chicken strips, I cut boneless, skinless breasts into pieces and placed in a bag. I poured in my seasoning and squished it around to fully coat each piece. I didn’t add anything beyond that. I placed the pieces on my raised racks (I wanted crispy pieces and wanted any liquids to drip off) and cooked for 15-20 minutes.

You can eat it plain with all its flavours or whip up a dipping sauce. Either way this is a fabulous meal!
