A New Favorite

Over the Thanksgiving holidays. . . I know, it's been a while . . . I was reading one of my favorite magazines All You. Try to get past the title and see that it's cheap and inside it has great tips and advice for all things woman. And not the supermodel, airbrushed, perfect homemaker, supermom woman. These pages have little tidbits of golden advice for the everyday, I have no time, I'm a few lbs overweight, but I still like to look pretty girl like you and me. And just so you know, All You isn't paying me a penny for all this love. I'm just doing it out of the goodness of my heart.

ANYWAY, over the Thanksgiving holidays I came across this recipe for chicken strips. The recipe is very simple and quick and easy on the Points. My family loves it and I've added it to our dinner menu because an entree that all 6 of us will eat just doesn't come along every day.

Crunchy Chicken Strips from All You
Serving: 2 strips Serves: 4
per serving: 192 cal., 1 g fat, 1 g fiber

1.25 lb boneless skinless chicken strips
1 egg white beaten
2 1/2 c corn flakes
1 tsp seasoning (the recipe suggests poultry seasoning, but I can't stand that stuff, so I use something bbq flavored.)

Toss strips with egg white. Place cornflakes and seasoning in food processor and blend into crumbs. Dredge chicken in crumbs, shake off excess and place on baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. Spray chicken lightly with cooking spray and bake at 400 degrees for 12 - 15 minutes or until chicken is golden brown and cooked through.

We had this last night and every person in my house cleaned their plate without complaining. It was a Valentine miracle.

Do you like my fine china? I'm just keepin' it real girls. That's the way we roll around here.

Our family's version of this:
crushed up corn chips with Mexican seasoning (I know how you are with Mexican food!) OR chicken dipped in Italian seasoning then instant potato flakes and cooked in the skillet--this one is probably not so point friendly, but the first one would be ok.

Am trying these out on the family tonight....but sorry to say I'm serving up a side dish of macaroni and cheese with it----it's Friday, time to celebrate the weekend! :)
Thanks for posting this....I know I've seen it before in all sorts of books/magazines, but when you put it up here, it just made me stop and think I needed to do it. Instead of ordering in chicken fingers fried in oil from a cafe! :)
