**This recipe is for chicken strips essentially. To make fried chicken meant for sandwiches, slice large boneless, skinless chicken breasts in half to create two thin pieces OR pound out the meat and slice into two pieces. Chicken should be 3/4 inch thick approximately. Dredge and fry according to those directions. Feel free to purchase already prepared fried chicken, remove the bones and use the breaded meat as the recipe states.
