Quick Chicken Strips

These tasty little strips are simple to make and taste so much better than the frozen bag of nuggets.  Not to mention they contain zero preservatives or artificial ingredients! 

1 lb chicken breast strips
1 cage free egg
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/8 cup organic corn meal
1/2 tsp sea salt or an MSG FREE seasoning salt, like Lowry's
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp italian seasoning or fresh chopped herbs of your choice

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease a baking sheet lightly with butter or oil.  In a medium bowl, combine flour, corn meal, salt, pepper and seasoning (you can also mix these ingredients in a large ziplock bag).  In a separate bowl, beat egg until yolk is combined with egg whites.  Dip each strip in egg first, then drag (or shake) in dry ingredients to coat the strips.  Place coated strips on baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes until juices are clear and meat is white and tender.  Serve with a ceasar salad, pasta of your choice, or with homemade ranch dressing for dipping.  Enjoy!
