Tasty Baked Chicken Strips

1 lb. Chicken Breast (cut into 1 inch strips) or Chicken Tenders

1/2 Cup Plain Yogurt

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Black Pepper

1 Teaspoon Salt

1/2 Cup Seasoned Bread Crumbs

Mix the yogurt, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Add the chicken strips and coat with mixture. Roll in bread crumbs and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Turn once halfway through baking. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.

These chicken strips are quick, easy and lower in fat than fried chicken strips. The yogurt gives them a tiny bit of bite. I make a double batch and freeze the already mixed leftovers. I take them out of the freezer in the morning and by dinner time it takes less than half an hour to roll them in bread crumbs and bake them. Talk about fast food and delicious!

  1. Working on a buffalo-flavored variation of this recipe, and when reading about cooking with yogurt, it is suggested not to use aluminum pans, as the acid in the yogurt will break down the aluminum. So, try to avoid aluminum baking sheets here, don’t think we want to trade fat and calories for cancer risk! 🙂

    • Thank you, I hadn’t heard that before! I love spicy buffalo chicken–wings, strips, sandwiches–sounds good! Plus, I think the yogurt would work well to balance out the spiciness a little bit.
