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

Step-By-Step

1Preheat 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.
2Place crumbs in one small dish and egg substitute in another.
3Next, coat raw chicken. First with egg and then with crumbs.
4Place strips on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray (Pam). Add a light mist of nonstick spray on top and place in the oven.
5Cook 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.
