Fried Chicken Strips

Fried Chicken Strips (Megan's favorite)

2 packets crushed saltines (80 crackers)
1 tsp garlic salt
½ tsp dried basil
½ tsp paprika
⅛ tsp pepper
1 egg
1 cup milk
1½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into ½ inch strips
Oil for deep-fat frying

In a gallon ziploc, combine the first 5 ingredients. In another ziploc mix the egg and milk. Dip chicken into egg mixture, then cracker mixture. In an electric skillet or deep-fat fryer, heat oil to 375°. Fry chicken a few strips at a time, for 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
