Lemon Pepper Chicken Strips

One thing I love, love, love about chicken strips? Super versatile! I like Cajun, Honey Mustard, BBQ, and Ranch - but sometimes - you need Sweet Asian Sesame or Lemon Pepper. One marinade experiment and voila - a new favorite for the family!

1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken (breast or thighs), cut into strips
3 tsp. lemon pepper seasoning
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. black pepper
3/4 C. lemon pepper marinade
1 T. olive oil

Combine seasonings in ziplock bag, dredge chicken throroughly. Pour in marinade and let set 24-48 hours.

In large skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil. Drain excess marinade from chicken and add chicken strips to skillet. Cook 3-5 minutes on each side, til lightly golden brown on outside and juices run clear.

Yield: 4-6 servings
