Okay, stop thinking dirty thoughts!  Chicken strips and potato chipper fries is on the menu tonight, not sexy dancers! 

I love this chicken.  It is so easy and even the little guys gobble it down.  I start by cutting up boneless skinless breasts into strips.  Season it with salt and pepper, roll it in seasoned bread crumbs, then in beaten egg, then back in the bread crumbs.

  Cook it in a bit of hot olive oil, browning on both sides.

  Then, I transfer it to a baking sheet.  Before it goes into the oven, I brush it with a melted butter and hot sauce combo.  You decide how hot to make it! 

I bake it at 400 degrees for about 5-10 minutes. 

I usually serve it with a side salad with blue cheese dressing.  Tonight I also made fries - shaped like potato chips.  Not because I was being creative or anything, but because all the potatoes I have left  in the bin are fairly small and it was easier to slice them in my new food processor, than to manually cut them into a french fry shape with a knife (or pampered chef garnisher).   I use just a bit of olive oil and some seasonings for the fries and bake them in the oven - you'd be hard pressed to tell this was a weight watchers recipe! (fries, that is)

Easy dinner that everyone loves - you can't beat that!


  1. This looks delicious!! We love chicken too. Would love the hot sauce too!! I made a new soup today called Macaroni and cheese soup and it was really good. If you think you might want to try it, I'll type you the recipe. You are always giving me great recipes. I get into such a rut sometimes!!

  2. Yes-that does look delicious.

    Your hubby and kids are lucky to have such a good cook!
