This homemade chicken strips recipe is a low-fat version of the fast-food standby.

Bite It: Homemade Chicken Strips

Why should onions and shrimp have all the fun? Maybe chicken wants to bathe in Egg Beaters, roll around in Fiber One crumbs, and bake to a mouthwatering crunch, too! Woohoo -- it's yet another fake-fried swap from your pal HG. Skeptics surrender; buy a box of Fiber One and blend it up, already! Then fool the family, dupe your date, and more important, trick your OWN taste buds!

Ingredients

6 oz. Tyson (or another brand) Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (raw); cut lengthwise into 5 strips
1/2 cup Fiber One cereal
1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original
1/4 tsp. Lawry's Garlic Salt
Pepper (to taste)

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Add garlic salt and pepper to crumbs. Place crumbs in one small dish and Egg Beaters in another. Next, coat raw chicken strips with Egg Beaters and then with crumb mixture. Place strips on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray. Spray a light mist of nonstick spray on top of strips and place in oven. Cook for 10 minutes, and then turn strips over. Add another light mist of nonstick spray and cook for an additional 8 to 10 minutes (until chicken is fully cooked and Fiber One looks crispy). Enjoy! Serves 1.
