Crispy Chicken Strip & French Fry Salad

Your favorite kids' meal, all grown up.

French fries > croutons. Think of this as your fave kids’ meal, all grown up into a salad with crispy chicken, shoestring fries, and honey mustard-ranch dressing (so you don’t have to choose). Anything counts as a salad if there's lettuce involved...right? Using a julienne peeler or mandoline is the easiest way to make super thin fries, but you can just use a knife to get them as thin as possible. In a pinch, you can also substitute frozen fries—baked for a little longer to make sure they're ultra crunchy—to save time. If you aren't so sure about frying at home, check our our tips and tricks for deep-frying without fear. You'll be a pro in no time.
