Beer battered chicken is so simple and delicious. I always serve this up at ball games and parties. Believe me, the recipe is always an instant hit. You can serve these delightful strips of chicken up as is or with your favorite condiment. Give this a try and let us know what you think.
There are a few tips to making this recipe First, I always use boneless, skinless chicken breasts which seem to work about the best. The spices are really easy to remember as they are 5 halves. This seems to spice the batter up nicely, but you can adjust them according to your liking. Becks is one of my favorites beers, so I use it. You, however, can use the beer of your choice. Sometimes a nice malt goes well with the recipe. I try to have my oil heated to about 350 degrees F. There is no need to get too fussy with thermometers. You can just toss a bit of flour in, if it sizzles, you know it’s done.
