Teresa's Chicken Fingers

1 1/2 lb. chicken tenders, or chicken breasts cut into strips
2 cups milk or buttermilk
2 eggs
1 tbsp. instant chicken bouillon
1 1/2 cups flour
2/3 cup parmesan cheese
2 tsp. Cajun or Creole seasoning
2 tsp. oregano
2 tsp. basil
2 tsp. garlic powder
Vegetable oil for frying

Combine milk, egg and chicken bouillon. Place chicken strips in milk/egg mixture, and soak for 30 minutes.

Combine flour and remaining ingredients (except oil). Remove chicken strips from milk/egg mixture, letting as much of the milk/egg drip off as possible. Dip each strip in the flour/seasoning mixture. Place floured chicken strips on a platter, and chill in the refrigerator for several hours.

Heat enough oil in a large skillet to completely cover chicken strips (or prepare deep fryer). When oil is hot, place chilled chicken strips a few at a time in hot oil. Fry until golden brown and crispy. Drain for ten minutes in a colander lined with paper towels.

Creole Seasoning:
1 (26 oz.) container salt
3 T black pepper
2 T garlic powder
1 t onion powder
1 t nutmeg
2 T parsley flakes (crunched)
4 T red pepper (ground) (cayenne)
2 T chili powder

Combine all ingredients; store in an airtight container.
