  • 1 cup bran cereal
  • 1 tsp salt-free seasoning mix
  • 1/4 cup egg whites
  • 6 oz boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into 6 strips
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 1 cup lettuce
  • 1 cup high-volume veggies (mushrooms, cucumber)
  • 2 tsp vinegar of choice
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil or grape seed oil


Prehead oven to 375°F. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. In a small blender or food processor, grind cereal into crumbs. Transfer to a wide bowl, and mix in seasoning mix. Place egg whites 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. Bake for 8 minutes. Flip chicken. Bake until cooked through and crispy, about 6 minutes. Toss salad ingredients in another medium bowl. Serve with chicken strips and mustard for dipping.
