Kid-Friendly Chicken Strips

If you're like me, your kids LOVE chicken nuggets! I've been on the hunt for a "healthier" version for them. When I came across these Chicken Strips, I had to try them, and you know what...the kids LOVED THEM!!!

I even asked my 5-year old son if he wanted those nasty processed nuggets, or if he wanted me to make these strips, and he didn't hesitate! He said "CHICKEN STRIPS!"

 Here's what you need!
Mustard (all I had was Honey Mustard), Corn Flakes, Honey, Egg & Chicken Breasts

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Cut your chicken into strips.

In a shallow bowl, combine egg, honey and mustard. In another dish, add the crushed cornflakes.

Dip chicken strips into egg mixture; roll in crumbs to coat. Arrange chicken strips on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 12 minutes, or until all sides are golden brown and chicken is cooked through!

  1. I have also been wanting to make home made chicken strips since my girls ALWAYS want chicken nuggets! Lol. These seem easy enough to make and I can't wait to try. Pinning them for later as I'm sure my girls will love them!

  2. This looks awesome!!! We would love it if you would link up at our linky party:

  3. I found a recipe a while ago that used Corn Flakes so I waited for a sale and picked up a few boxes. I have done nothing with them. I am totally going to have to try this! I did try the ones with Captain Crunch like they had at Planet Hollywood which I loved but my husband disliked. Maybe these will be a winner :)

  4. These look really yummy! I little girl would love them!
