Ultimate Chicken Fingers

Today's recipe comes from another one of my most favorite summer finds,  Plain Chicken.  

I have to admit that when I decided to try this recipe I really didn't have high hopes.  I have tried quite a few similar recipes and haven't been too impressed.

However, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised!  This recipe is fantastic!!!  It was very easy, uses simple ingredients and has SO much flavor!  You must make them! 

The Stars of the Show:  Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips (you can also buy chicken tenders which will save you from having to cut them into strips, or you can cut the chicken into nuggets.  Whatever floats your boat), Bisquick, parmesan cheese, an egg, garlic salt, pepper and paprika.

 Combine the Bisquick, parmesan, garlic salt and paprika on a plate or other vessel of your choice.

 Sprinkle the chicken with some garlic salt and pepper.

Next you will dip your chicken strips into the egg (which you beat), and dredge it in the Bisquick mixture.  Then you park the strips onto a foil lined baking sheet that you have sprayed with cooking spray.   

I sprayed my foil and some of the chicken still stuck a little to the bottom.  Not sure why but I think next time I will either use non-stick foil or just ditch the foil altogether and cook them right on my non-stick cookie sheet.  

Cook the chicken at 450 for about 12-15 minutes.  They don't take long since they're small and if you over cook them you'll have a hard time swallowing them because they will be so dried out.

And here they are!  

Please excuse all the paper plates in this post.  I really hate to wash dishes if I don't have to.

  These chicken strips were a big hit with everyone in my family with the exception of course, of Muffin, the worlds pickiest eater!  He wouldn't even try them.

 This was Muffin's dinner.
He's so excited for his cheerios.  Can you tell?
