Ingredients in place (oil not shown). Use a larger bowl if desired for mixing the chicken and flour, as the Flour tends to make a huge mess when mixed with the chicken.
Slice up the chicken and add it to the flour, *gently* mixing to coat all pieces of chicken with flour.
Chicken coated in whole wheat flour. All that's left is to cook it!
Pan, oil, heat. Add chicken when the oil is hot; sizzling chicken means the oil is hot enough, otherwise it's too cold. Cold oil will result in mushy chicken; that's not good.
Flip chicken after 3 minute of cooking. The cooked side should be a nice golden brown color.
Place the cooked chicken on a paper towel for drying. The towel will soak up a lot of the excess oil.
Plate and serve! A dab of ketchup or bbq sauce adds an extra kick of flavor to these healthy-ish whole wheat shallow-fried chicken strips. Here I served it with ketchup and a side salad.
