Ingredients

  • Olive or Canola Oil Cooking spray
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into vertical strips
  • 2 cups plain nonfat greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard (if desired)
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 1/2 cups Cornflake or Honey Bunches of Oats (either with almonds or honey roasted) cereal, crushed

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Rinse your chicken breasts strips and pat dry with a paper towel; set aside.

  2. Add greek yogurt, honey, salt, and dijon mustard (if desired) to a large bowl. Place chicken into bowl and toss to coat each in yogurt, cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge for 20 minutes.
  3. After 20 minutes, place 1/2 of the crushed cereal in a ziploc bag and add 1/2 of the yogurt covered chicken to the bag, shaking to coat. 

  4. Remove and place on large greased baking sheet then repeat with second half of the cereal and chicken.
  5. Spray the chicken with cooking spray and bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Serves 4.

Recipe Notes

Baking time will depend on how large or thick your chicken tenders are. Check after 20 minutes for small tenders.

These can also be made into chicken nuggets, just cut chicken into smaller cube-like pieces before marinating.
