Spicy Baked Chicken Strips

Spicy Baked Chicken Strips from 101 Cooking For Two
An easy recipe for a tender and tasty spiced up chicken strips that are healthy too. Great for that party or just dinner. I used chicken tenders but just cut some skinless boneless chicken breasts into strips if you want. Another 30 minute recipe.

After reading 20 recipes I decided to start with my own recipe for Spicy Oven Fried Chicken. It worked just fine.

Really good. You can cook up as much as you want for a party or a few for a meal.

Notes: As written, the recipe is about a 6/10 hot. I did increase the cayenne by a 1/4 tsp. and it was a strong 8/10. If your cooking for kiddies or the heat adverse, eliminate the cayenne. To keep the fat down, I used two egg whites but you could use one egg with the yoke. Finally ,in the original recipe the coating can be a little dry. I gave them a light spray with PAM... problem solved.

Preheat oven to 400 convection. Prep a baking tray by lining with aluminum foil, fit with a rake and spray with PAM.
 Trim and rinse 1 1/2 pounds of chicken tenders. Or trim and slice 2 skinless boneless chicken breasts into 1/2 inch thick stripes.
 Dry the chicken. DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP.
 Create a dredge line with 1/4 cup flour in tray #1, 2 egg whites or one egg wiped with 1 T water in tray #2, and 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs, 1 t paprika, 1/2 t garlic powder, 1/2 t each salt and pepper and lastly 1/4 t cayenne pepper (adjust for taste). Roll the chicken in tray one and shake dry.
 Dip in the egg wash and shake off excess.
 Roll in the final tray
 Place on prepared tray. Give them a light spray of PAM.
Cook until 165 in thickest part. 18-20 minutes.

I bet this would be also good with chipotle pepper for a smoky version. Or cut into nuggets. Trevor loves chicken nuggets but refuses to eat them anymore after seeing how they were made commercially.
