Cajun Fried Chicken Fingers

Today is a nice cold, rainy day and you always feel like eating something hot and deep fried. I usually try to avoid deep frying as much as possible, but sometimes it does not hurt. :-)
Anush also likes fried chicken, lately I am trying to avoid buying chicken nuggets from McD, because I feel they don't use fresh oil every time for their frying. So thought of making it for him at home. I used Cajun spice, and don't need to add anything else to it.

1 lb Chicken tenderloin strips
1 tbsp Cajun Spice/ seasoning
2 Egg
1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Bread Crumbs ( I used combination of whole wheat and panko bread crumbs)
Oil of frying.

1. In a plate keep the chicken strips and with paper towel, wipe off excess water out of the chicken.
2. Take three wide bowls or plates and in first plate keep the all purpose flour, in the second plate beat eggs, and in the third plate keep the bread crumbs.
3. Mix half of the Cajun seasoning to the all purpose flour and rest to the bread crumbs so that you can season the chicken properly.
4. Heat oil in meantime so about 350F.
5. Take each chicken strips with a fork, so that you need not mess up your hands, else you can use your hands too. Coat the chicken strips one by one in the all purpose flour first, shake off the excess, then dip into the eggs, then coat it fully with the bread crumbs and then when the oil is hot add it to the add gently and deep fry for about 3-4 mins both sides or until golden brown.
6. Repeat these steps for all the chicken strips. Make sure that you don't over crowd the pan, else the chicken will not cook properly.
7. Serve this with any choice of dipping sauce or ketchup.
