Chicken strips with mustard sauce score culinary touchdown at Superbowl parties

See also

Chicken wings have become a tradition for Superbowl parties, but oh, the grease! Hot sauce and chicken fat are admittedly tasty, but they're also messy and decidedly not great for the cardiovascular system.

Parmesan chicken strips are infinitely less fatty but equally flavorful. Baked with a crunchy oat coating, Parmesan chicken strips combine healthy eating with the texture and taste of fried chicken. Parmesan chicken strips are quick to make, taking about a half-hour to prepare, cook and serve. In addition, the spicy mustard sauce contains no fat but it has flavor that goes a long way. Get ready to enjoy a nearly guilt-free snack along with the big game.

Parmesan chicken strips
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/4 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. poultry seasoning
2 eggs
1 tbsp. water
1/2 c. quick cooking oats
2/3 c. dry Parmesan cheese (or Parmesan blend)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Generously spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.

Using sharp knife, cut chicken breasts lengthwise into strips - 3 or 4 strips per breast depending on size. Place flour, pepper, salt and poultry seasoning into plastic bag; dredge chicken strips in flour mixture.

Whisk together eggs and water in a flat dish or pie pan. Dip flour-coated chicken strips in egg mixture.

Mix together oats and Parmesan cheese in a second plastic bag. Coat chicken strips in oat mixture and place on baking sheet. Spray top of chicken strips with cooking spray. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until meat registers 180 degrees and coating is well browned.

Mustard Sauce
1 c. hot and spicy brown mustard
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. white vinegar
1 tsp. garlic powder

Whisk all ingredients together. Serve with chicken strips.

Tip
For an extra hot sauce, add a dash of crushed red peppers or a small splash of Tabasco sauce.
