  4. Empty the bag of air pop crisps into a second large baggie. Get a rolling pin and crush the chips until they are well crushed (if you can not find these pop crisp chips at your local grocery store, you can use regular BBQ chips).

  6. In a shallow bowl, mix up the eggs.
  7. Take approximately 5 strips and add to the first bag of flour. Seal baggie and shake until chicken is well coated.

  9. After you have dipped them in the egg wash, add the chicken strips to the second baggie, seal shut and shake until chicken is well coated.
  10. Remove and add chicken strips to the deep fryer. Cook for approximately 6-8 minutes, or until the outside is golden brown and the internal temperature is 165°F.
  11. Remove chicken once done and put on a plate with paper towels. Pat off excess oil with paper towels.
