Honey Bunches of Chicken - Homemade Strips

So these chicken strips are the first of its kind, at least for me. These are some that I actually made and they were so good that I just had to share, not only them but the recipe too!

First off, here is a picture of the finished product! I paired them with green beans, and while they were great beans they came from a can so I'm not going into detail about them.
Nice and hot <3
 I bet you're wondering "Wow Ellen, those look so unique and delicious how did you make those???"

WELL.

Cereal.

I'm a firm believer that breading will make or break a chicken strip. It also brings the most flavor to the table and so many places just use flour and egg. For this recipe though, our breading is

Drum roll, please...


Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds! 



All you have to do is preheat your oven to 425. 
Then take some of the cereal and put it in a ziplock bag. Since I was making 8 strips I used about a cup and a half of cereal.
Seal the bag and lay it out flat.
Then take a rolling pin (or a can of Pam because you just moved and have nothing else to work with) and crush the cereal into delicious small breading for your chicken.

Now for the chicken strips (Mine were 'Once frozen now thawed' Great Value chicken strips, nothing fancy), you want to dip them in 2 whipped egg, making sure to really get all the crevices.
Throw them into your ziplock back 2 or 3 at a time and seal the bag- or scrunch up the top in your fist if you're really brave- and shake the devil out of that bag.
Take the strips out and put them on a cookie sheet or whatever will go in your oven. I used a cookie sheet with aluminum foil on it sprayed with non-stick spray.

They should come out looking like this!!
How delicious do those look??? 


Side Note: You could also fry these but I would recommend adding some flour to the chicken before putting it in the egg.

And let those cook for 20 minutes in the oven and you will have a great, healthy, honey sweet meal that will make you want more (and I definitely wanted more)

Cereal is my favorite coating to work with so you'll probably see some more reviews of cereal chicken coming your way.
