Notes from the Test Kitchen:
You'd never know these chicken fingers aren't fried. The cereal coating gets nice and crispy while baking. You taste the simple seasonings, but nothing is too overpowering. This is a great recipe if you're feeding a crowd - it can easily be multiplied. Your family is going to fall in love with these tenders.

Ingredients

6 oz
raw skinless boneless lean chicken breast, cut into 8 strips
1/2 c
Fiber One bran cereal (original)
1/4 c
fat-free liquid egg substitute
1/4 tsp
powdered garlic
1 tsp
original blend Mrs. Dash
1/2 tsp
black pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Add garlic powder, original blend Mrs. Dash, and black pepper to crumbs.
2
Place crumbs in one small dish and egg substitute in another.
3
Next, coat raw chicken. First with egg and then with crumbs.
4
Place strips on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray (Pam). Add a light mist of nonstick spray on top and place in the oven.
5
Cook for 10 min. Then turn strips over and spritz with another light mist of nonstick spray. Cook for an additional 7 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is fully cooked and crumb coating looks crispy.
