Oven Fried Chicken

I have good intentions of getting at least one entry on this blog each week but so far have been failing.  Last week Stephen and I both got sick and spent most of the week on chicken noodle soup so there wasn't any food to blog about. However, since I am behind I do have 2 dishes from the week before that I can share with you.  The first, oven fried chicken, I have made a couple of times and really do enjoy.  I got it last October from the Hungry Girl daily newsletter.  (I highly recommend checking out the site and signing up for the newsletter if you haven't already.) Every time we make it, we talk about making it a staple on the menu. Now that we are trying to eat healthier, I think we will have it at least every 2 weeks.

 

Oven Fried Chicken
Recipe from Hungry Girl
 

**This is the original recipe and makes 1 serving.I normally make a double batch.

 

6 oz. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

1/2 cup Fiber One cereal

1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original

1/4 tsp. Lawry's Garlic Salt (I use garlic powder instead)

Pepper (to taste)

 

 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency.

3. Put crumbs in a small bowl.  Add Garlic Salt and pepper to crumbs.

4. Pour Egg Beaters in another bowl.

5. Coat raw chicken strips with Egg Beater.

 

 

6. Coat chicken with crumb mixture.

 

 

7. Place strips on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray.

 

 

8. Spray a light mist of nonstick spray on top of strips and place in oven.

9. Cook for 10 minutes

10. Take out of oven, turn strips over.  Add another light mist of nonstick spray. 

11. Cook for an additional 8 - 10 minutes (until chicken is fully cooked and Fiber One looks crispy)
