Healthy Chicken Strips

I feel like chicken tonight, like chicken tonight!🎶 💃 That’s an old school commercial jingle, my younger generation foodies☺️😜

Are you food prepping chicken right now? I am!🙋 Don’t make it the same boring old way…change it up!

Tonight we made these Healthy Chicken Strips 🙌🏼 with the use of Kodiakcakes Frontier Flapjack and Waffle mix! I’m loving this versatile, all natural whole grain mix! It’s not just for pancakes 🌟 Great recipe to make for the family too! My kids dig it👌🏼

Healthy Chicken Strips

1/2 cup Kodiakcakes Buttermilk & Honey Frontier Flapjack and Waffle Mix

1 lb chicken breasts, cut into strips

1 egg white (or use whole egg)

Your choice of seasonings. We used garlic powder, onion powder, pepper & salt.

Place dry ingredients into a plate. Beat your egg white in a shallow bowl. Dip the chicken strip into the egg wash, then into the dry mix. Coat well.

Cook chicken strips in an oil sprayed skillet (or coated with extra virgin olive oil for added healthy fats) at a med-high heat until thoroughly cooked through. Charing it at a higher temp will get that little extra crispiness 👌🏼

Serve with a side of organic tomato ketchup or make your own honey mustard (raw honey + mustard 😋)…whatever strikes your fancy☺️

Macros based on 14 strips out of the whole recipe (will vary of course based on the number of chickie strips you cut☺️): 44 cals/2g carbs/0.5g fat/ 7.5 protein per strip
