A real Southern tradition like fried chicken can be hard to give up, especially when you have to switch to a diabetic meal plan. By coating boneless, skinless chicken with flavorful seasonings and baking it in the oven, we leave out the excess fat and calories, and end up with a new, healthier way of enjoying an old favorite!

What You'll Need

  • 2/3 cup Fiber One cereal*
  • 1 cup bran cereal*
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper*
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 12 strips
  • cooking spray*

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. In a resealable plastic storage bag, combine the cereals, pecans, sesame seeds, salt, and red pepper. Crush into medium-fine crumbs then pour into a shallow dish. Place the egg whites in another shallow dish.

  3. Dip each chicken strip into the egg whites then into the crumb mixture, coating completely. Place on the baking sheet and coat lightly with nonstick cooking spray.

  4. Bake the chicken for 15 to 18 minutes, or until no pink remains. Serve immediately.


*To make this a gluten-free recipe, use gluten-free cereals and/or crispy coating mix, seasoning with no added starch from a gluten-containing source, and nonstick cooking spray with no flour added.

I am trying to imagine how this would taste. It does not look appetizing to me. The first three ingredients sound like they should be in a dessert. I know you can make oven fried chicken with crushed cereal, but have never heard of this before. I will try it?
