For Lifestyle 180 "YOU" Chicken Fingers:
Cut chicken breast lengthwise into 3 equal pieces. Cut each piece crosswise into 6 strips. Season
chicken with cumin, garlic powder, and salt. Dredge strips first lightly in flour, then egg whites,
letting excess drip off, then in bread crumbs.
Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add chicken; cook until golden
brown on bottom. Turn; continue cooking until chicken is golden brown and cooked through.
Serve with BBQ Dipping Sauce.
Chef Notes: Tips to Use Less Fat
??? Always use a nonstick pan.
??? Ensure oil is hot but not smoking. Test by dropping in a pinch of bread crumbs to see if
the oil bubbles quickly.
??? Oil will bubble up in a nonstick pan when you use small amounts that do not cover the
bottom, so place a chicken finger in bubble and drag to a dry spot in the pan. Repeat
process until all chicken strips are in the pan.
For Dipping Sauce:
This sauce is wonderful to dip crunchy Lifestyle 180 "YOU" Chicken Fingers in. Extra sauce
may be refrigerated up to 4 days or frozen up to 3 months.
Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally. Remove
from heat; cool completely.
