Homemade Blackened Chicken Strips

Since these are so difficult to find in stores, you all asked me to create a copycat version, so here it is. HOMEMADE BLACKENED CHICKEN STRIPS. But caution: while they are so extremely delicious, these pack on the heat. I paired it with my homemade spicy ranch, to cool it down a bit, without removing the heat flavor.

If you want something less spicy to dip your tenders in, try my normal zero point healthy ranch. Really good!
