Baked Chicken Tenders
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Lightly coat with cooking spray; set aside. Cut each chicken breast half lengthwise into three strips.Advertisement
In a small bowl, beat together egg whites, the water, and lemon peel. In another small bowl, stir together bread crumbs and cheese. Dip chicken strips in egg white mixture, then in bread crumb mixture, turning to coat. Arrange strips on prepared baking sheet. Lightly coat chicken strips with additional cooking spray.
Bake about 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees F), turning once halfway through baking. If desired, serve with barbecue sauce.
