Crispy Parmesan Chicken Strips

There is nothing I despise more than coming home from school, slaving over five hours of homework, and having to cook for two hours. I have been searching relentlessly for quick but delicious recipes that I can have made and eaten in under an hour. These yummy chicken strips hit the nail on the head. If you have pre-thawed chicken breasts, the prep time should be no more than 10 minutes (about the time it takes to heat the oven up!) I have made these twice: once with homemade Alfredo noodles, and this time with garlic mashed potatoes, which take the same time to prepare as the chicken!

Crispy Parmesan Chicken Strips

1.5 cups season croutons, crushed
1.5 oz. (1/3 c) fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tsp. dried parsley, optional
1/4 tsp garlic salt
2 egg whites
1 T. water
1lb boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 1'' pieces
1/4 c. prepared Ranch dressing, can be lite

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Crush croutons into resealable bag. Grate Parmesan cheese. In large bowl, combine crushed croutons, cheese, parsley, and garlic salt. Whisk egg and water in a separate bowl. Dip chicken pieces into egg mixture, then into crumb mixtures to coat evenly. Arrange on 13" round baking dish. Bake 14-16 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink in center.
