Skinny Chicken Fingers Recipe

I found this awesome chicken fingers recipe in my fitness magazine. Originally I was excited because my son loves chicken strips but they pack 600 plus calories at his favorite restaurant. These weigh in at only 212 calories and 3 grams of fat...AWESOME! Added bonus, I don't feel guilty sitting down to enjoy a few with him.

Serves 4


  • 12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard
  • 2 cups cornflakes, finely crushed
  • Dash of black pepper

Make it

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Cut chicken into 3-by -3/4 inch strips
  2. In a shallow bowl, combine egg, honey and mustard. In another bowl, stir together cornflakes and pepper.
  3. Dip chicken strips into egg mixture; roll in crumb mixture to coat. Arrange strips on ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Bake about 12 minutes, or until outsides are golden and chicken is no longer pink
  5. Try with a homemade honey mustard dip (1/4 cup Dijon mustard and 1tsp honey)
