Seasoned Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers

Omelets and hashbrowns were on the original meal plan for tonight, but along with the rest of the weeks plan, that didn't happen! We ended up having that last night. Tonight we had Seasoned Oven-Fried Chicken Fingers with homemade mashed potatoes and green beans.

I have tried many, many recipes for Oven-Fried Chicken, and all of them haven't been what I was looking for. They usually turn out dry, with no flavor. This recipe however, has been the best one I've ever had. The breading gets crispy and has flavor, and the chicken always stays so juicy! 

Seasoned Chicken Strips Recipe 

4 Servings
Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

1/3 cup egg substitute
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 garlic clove, minced
1 cup flour
3/4 cup dry italian bread crumbs
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 pound chicken tenderloins

In a shallow bowl, combine the egg substitute, mustard and garlic. In another shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, basil, paprika, salt and pepper. Put the flour in yet, another shallow bowl. Dip chicken first in the flour, then in egg mixture, and then roll in crumbs.
Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes (flipping half way through) or until golden brown and juices run clear.

We've all seen how bad I'm doing when it comes to sticking to my meal plan this week. How is everyone else doing on theirs?
