Finger Lickin' Good!

Why should onions and shrimp have all the fun?  Maybe chicken wants to bathe in Egg Beaters, roll around in Fiber One crumbs and bake to a mouthwatering crunch, too!  Woohoo -- it's yet another fake-fried swap from your pal HG.  Skeptics surrender; buy a box of Fiber One and blend it up, already!  Then fool the family, dupe your date, and more importantly, trick your OWN tastebuds!



6 oz. Tyson (or another brand**) Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts (raw); cut lengthwise into 5 strips

1/2 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal

1/4 cup Egg Beaters Original

1/4 tsp. Lawry's Garlic Salt

pepper (to taste) 



Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Add Garlic Salt and pepper to crumbs.  Place crumbs in one small dish and Egg Beaters in another. Next, coat raw chicken strips with egg substitute and then with crumb mixture. Place strips on a baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray.  Spray a light mist of nonstick spray on top of strips and place in oven. Cook for 10 minutes, and then turn strips over.  Add another light mist of nonstick spray and cook for an additional 8 - 10 minutes (until chicken is fully cooked and Fiber One looks crispy).  Enjoy!  Serves 1.

Hey, Ronald, the joke's on you. There's a new chick in town, clown! Your crunchy, greasy chicken strips have been hard to resist in the past, but the 600+ calories and 33 grams of fat they're packing are embarrassing and unnecessary. BTW, that's without any of those various dipping sauces that contain anywhere from 50 - 200 calories and up to 22 fat grams (it's the Creamy Ranch Sauce that clocks in at 200 -- oooh, shocker!). Our strip swap is SO good, you'll never crave the fatty fast food ones again. But don't take our word for it -- go ahead and chew for yourself.
