Whole grain crispy chicken strips

Submitted by: ZORBS13
Whole grain crispy chicken strips

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/3 cup whole wheat flour
    Salt and ground black pepper
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch wide strips
    1/3 cup milk
    1/3 cup grated Parmesan
    1/2 cup oats
    3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    3/4 teaspoon onion powder (substitute any spices you like, I use Montreal steak spice)

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

In a shallow dish, combine flour and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper.
Place milk in a separate shallow dish.

In a third shallow dish or resealable plastic bag, combine parmesan, oats, garlic powder, onion powder. (I whizz this in the food processor for a few pulses) You can also add any spices you like here - sometimes we add some Italian seasoning, other times some chili powder if we feel like spicy, etc.

Dip chicken into flour and turn to coat.

Dip flour-coated chicken into milk and then transfer chicken to oat mixture.

Turn to coat chicken (or shake bag) until well covered with oat mixture.

Place chicken on prepared baking sheet and spray the top of chicken with cooking spray.

Bake 15 minutes, until crust is golden brown and chicken is cooked through. (I bake, then turn on the broiler for a few minutes to really brown/crisp them and get the coating crunchy)

Number of Servings: 4

    I have eaten these with hot sauce and with barbecue sauce, and both are amazing. I love how crunchy these are!

    When chicken is on sale, I buy it up, cook these, and freeze them. 10 minutes in the oven at 300 and they are ready to eat again! - 5/2/10

    Processing the oats makes it so you can hardly tell that it's not traditional breading =] - 8/10/08

    Tasted really good. I will be making this again. One exception though, I will make the strips wider and cook a little longer for the difference in size of chicken pieces. Chicken tenders instead of strips. Oatmeal ! What a great idea! Sure beats plain Whole wheat flour! - 6/16/10

    Very tasty! I broiled 3 minutes at the end but I think I will do it a bit longer to make it crispier. Otherwise very good! - 2/24/11

    Tried this last night and really enjoyed it. I didn't process the oat coating only because I don't own a machine to do so, and they still turned out good. I imagine they're even better if that can be done. I'm picky with whole wheat flour, but it worked really well in this recipe. Thanks for it! - 6/17/10

    This was good. It didn't come out crunchy, though. We had fun because my 12 year old daughter and I made it together. - 3/7/10
