Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon salt-free Cajun seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup beer
  • 8 pepperoncini peppers
  • 1 quart quart vegetable oil
  • Cocktail sauce and ranch dressing for dipping (optional)
  • Lemon wedges for squeezing (optional)

Directions

  1. Toss chicken with 11/2 tsp of the Cajun seasoning and 1/2 tsp of the salt. In a large bowl, whisk flour, beer and remaining 11/2 tsp Cajun seasoning and 1/2 tsp salt. Toss chicken and peppers in batter and coat completely.
  2. In a Dutch oven, heat oil to 375 degrees . Working in 3 batches, drop chicken pieces and peppers into oil, one piece at a time. Fry for 3 minutes, gently stirring halfway through cooking time.
