“Grilled” Chicken Strips


One of my favorite meals recently has included homemade chicken strips. We don’t own a grill, so I “grill” these chicken strips in a skillet.  My homemade “grilled” chicken strips are ridiculously easy to make and lip-lickin’ good!


I’m going to show you how I make them and then you can print out the recipe at the end. Mwah!

Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a skillet on medium-high heat.  Add chicken breast strips. I use my handy kitchen shears for this job. Sprinkle strips with sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder and rosemary. I’m not afraid of spices, so I’m generous.

Turn chicken strips with tongs so they brown evenly. As the butter is absorbed, the pan will begin to glaze on the bottom. Turn those strips and get them browned to your liking.

Add 1 1/2-2 cups water to the skillet, bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and tender. The water shouldn’t evaporate too quickly, but keep an eye on the strips as they cook and add more water if needed.

Serve chicken strips over rice or quinoa or simply with ketchup for the kids. Or…make my favorite lunch, snack, dinner creation that I can’t seem to get enough of.

My chicken strip lettuce wraps are beyond delicious!  I start with organic romaine lettuce pieces. Then load with chicken strips, sliced avocado, cheese and mustard…and maybe an extra sprinkle of salt.

I’ll probably wear this meal out because I’ve been eating it for two weeks, but just trust me, it’s yummy and very healthful!

  1. My favorite chicken dish is grilling a whole chicken. But I also love it in chicken pot pie, soup, and lettuce wraps. When I make chicken lettuce wraps, I add broccoli slaw, red onions and make peanut sauce to pour on top. I will have to try it with avacado and mustard some time – yum!

  2. These look delicious! And, perfect for pregnancy! I always go through spurts when I’m pregnant, and eat the same thing for a few weeks, then get tired of it. But, I think this one would be more consistent for me 🙂 Hope you’re feeling well!

  3. I have been making my Egg salad sandwiches in lettuce leaves for Years. Also Chicken salad & Ham salad. I love them & it’s a great way for a Diabetic to reduce Carbohydrates.
