Step 1: Marinate chicken

If using chicken breast, slice into 1-inch thick strips. Place chicken strips or tenders in a gallon-size zip-top bag. Add enough buttermilk to just cover chicken. Add Onion & Garlic Tableside Sprinkle. Seal bag and shake to coat chicken with marinade. Refrigerate for 2 hours or up to overnight.

Step 2: Dredge and fry chicken

In a deep skillet, Dutch oven, or deep fryer, heat about 2 inches of oil to 350 degrees. Mix flour and Lake Barkley Fried Chicken Seasoning together in a pie dish or wide bowl. Remove chicken strips from marinade one at a time and roll in flour mixture to coat completely. Fry several coated strips at a time in the vegetable oil. Remove from oil when they are golden brown and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Serve warm.
