Quick n Easy Crispy Chicken Strips

An easy oven baked breaded chicken strip recipe that’s great for the whole family.These chicken strips are my kids’ favorite, and the greatest part is that they are Slimming World compatible. These are wonderful since they have chicken, handmade breadcrumbs, and just the appropriate amount of flavor.

The chicken is usually tender and lacks the terrible processed taste that frozen ready-made chicken tends to have. You can always be certain that these are made with real chicken.
