You can go out for these chicken strips, or you can make our version of these at home. These are easy to make with a little elbow grease. You can make these up fresh for a ball game, tailgate party, or even a family night in. Rather than buying a big batch of these, you can make a large batch of these at home. In this recipe we have you making battered chicken strips, and then we add a few extra ingredients to BBQ sauce that you can find in the grocery store. We think that you will find that these taste very close to the original.
