  • 1/2 cup bran cereal
  • 1 tsp salt-free seasoning mix
  • 1/4 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 6 oz raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 6 strips
  • 1 cup lettuce
  • 1 cup cucumber, mushrooms, or other high-volume veggies
  • 2 tsp vinegar (balsamic, red wine, white wine, rice, or cider)
  • 1 tsp extra-virgin olive oil or grapeseed oil
  • 1 tbsp mustard


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.


2. In a small blender or food processor, grind cereal into crumbs (or crush cereal with a meat mallet through a baggie). Transfer to a wide bowl, and mix in seasoning mix.


3. Place egg whites or substitute in another wide bowl. One at a time, dunk chicken strips in egg, shake to remove excess, and coat with crumbs. Evenly lay on the baking sheet.


4. Bake for 8 minutes. Flip chicken. Bake until cooked through and crispy, about 6 minutes.


5. Toss salad ingredients in another medium bowl. Serve with chicken strips and mustard for dipping.
