“Tender chicken breast pieces are baked with a tasty bread crumb coating flavored with lemon and Parmesan cheese.”


    • Nonstick cooking spray
    • 4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 to 1¼ pounds total)
    • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
    • 1 tablespoon water
    • 1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
    • ½ cup seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
    • ¼ cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese
    • ¼ cup bottled low-calorie barbecue sauce (optional)


  • 1 Preheat oven to 400°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.
  • 2 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.
  • 3 Bake about 15 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F), turning once halfway through baking. If desired, serve with barbecue sauce.
