  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.

    In a mixing bowl, whisk the egg lightly. Whisk in the beer and then add the dry ingredients. Whisk until smooth and well blended. Cover the bowl and let stand at room temperature for about 25 minutes before using.
  3. Step 3

    Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise. If the chicken breasts are large, slice them into thirds or quarters. 
  4. Step 4

    Heat the vegetable oil in a deep 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the oil reaches 360 F. Or heat the oil in a deep fryer with temperature control.
  5. Step 5

    Using tongs to hold the chicken strips, dip each in the batter; allow the excess to drip off.

    Carefully lower the strips, one by one, into the hot oil. After about 1 minute, turn the strips.

    Continue to turn the strips occasionally until they are golden, cooking for a total of 4 to 6 minutes.
  8. Step 8

    Transfer to a paper towel-lined tray. Pat more towels on top to absorb excess oil.
