Beer Battered Chicken Strips

1 egg ($.10)
2/3 C. beer ($.46)
1 C. flour ($.05)
1 tsp. baking soda ($.05)
1 tsp. salt ($.05)
1/2 tsp. black pepper ($.05)
1 tsp. garlic powder ($.05)
1 tsp. onion powder ($.05)
1/4 tsp. paprika ($.05)
3 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves ($1.79)
1 C. vegetable oil ($.05)

Beat the egg lightly with a whisk. Beat in the beer, then beat in all the dry ingredients, whisking until mixture is smooth. Cover and let stand for 25 minutes.

Cut chicken into thin strips.

Heat oil in 10" skillet over a medium-high heat until oil reaches desired temperature of 350 degrees.

Using tongs to hold the chicken strips, dip in batter and allow excess to drip off. Remove and carefully lower into the oil - one strip at a time. After one minute, turn strips over in oil. Continue to turn the strips occasionally until they are golden, cooking for a total of 4-6 minutes.

Transfer to a paper towel-lined tray. Pat dry.

Serve immediately with barbecue sauce, sweet and sour sauce, or honey mustard.
Serves: 3-4 people
Cost: $2.75
Cost per serving: $.92
