Baked Chicken Bites (Chicken Fingers)

This is a great recipe. It's quick and so good. I usually serve it with a salad and applesauce. It could be an appetizer if you were to throw a dinner party, but we always eat them for dinner. IF you double it, they make great leftover lunches. Have bbq sauce, ketchup and ranch as dips.

2-3 Skinless, Boneless organic chicken breasts
1 TB freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 TB olive oil
1 tsp garlic salt
1 TB mustard
1 Cup dry bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 375. Cut chicken breasts into desired size strips. In a medium bowl, combine lemon juice, oil, garlic and mustard. Add cut chicken strips to lemon mixture and marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or longer. Spread breadcrumbs on a plate or wax paper. Remove chicken pieces and roll in bread crumbs to coat. Place chicken pieces on lightly oiled baking sheet and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, turning after 10 minutes. Be sure sides are golden and chicken is cooked through.

I love this meal, good job making it last night. We need to make about 1/4 more though because we always finish it off like it was a 20 pc. pack of Chicken McNuggets.

Oh my goodness, Missy! I just made this for dinner tonight, and I should have doubled it for my family. It was delicious! The boys ate it like it was candy. And, so easy to make. This one is going into the "Family Favorites File" for sure! Thanks!!
