Seriously Tasty Chicken Fingers

My good friend Hillary shared this recipe with me. These are some seriously tasty chicken fingers. I served them with a small pasta side one night, and made the best chicken burgers with left-overs the next night. You'll love these, trust me, they're delicious.

You need:
4 chicken breast halves, cut into strips (whatever size you want)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup flour
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. seasoned salt
dash of pepper
1 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp. baking powder
1 quart of vegetable oil for frying

Place chicken strips into a large, resealable plastic bag. In a small bowl, mix the egg, buttermilk and garlic powder. Pour mixture into bag with chicken. Seal, and refrigerate 2 to 4 hours.
In another large, resealable plastic bag, mix together the flour, bread crumbs, paprika, onion powder, seasoned salt, pepper, and baking powder.
Remove chicken from refrigerator, and drain, discarding buttermilk mixture. Place chicken in flour mixture bag. Seal, and shake to coat.
Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Carefully place coated chicken in hot oil. Fry until golden brown and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels.
