Honey BBQ Chicken Strips

Honey BBQ Chicken Strips - Rebekah and her Ramblings. An upgraded sweet and delicious kids classic that will make anybody happy!I love chicken strips and I love BBQ sauce AND I love honey! This recipe combines all three into one delicious baked chicken strip. Plus, these are baked so they are healthier than fried and almost definitely healthier than the fast food version – even though I still love you Chick-Fil-A, and Layne’s, and Cane’s! Chicken strips are considered by the ignorant to be a small children’s food, like hotdogs (also not a small children’s food), but I am here to show you that you can make any food delicious with just a little bit of preparation.

Honey BBQ Chicken Strips
Serves: 2-3

Prep Time: At least 45 minutes       Cook Time:18-22 minutes

What you need:

  • 2 large chicken breasts, butterflied and cut into strips
  • Lawry’s seasoning salt
  • 3/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • flour (about 1/2 cup, see directions)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • breadcrumbs (about 3/4 cup, see directions)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • cooking spray (the nonstick stuff you prep your pans with)Honey BBQ Chicken Strips - Rebekah and her Ramblings. An upgraded sweet and delicious kids classic that will make anybody happy!

Directions:

  • Season the chicken strips with Lowry’s and place in a large bowl
  • Pour the honey and BBQ sauce over the chicken strips, stir, and marinate covered in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. I marinated mine for about two hours
  • Combine some flour with the paprika and pepper. When I am coating like this, I never measure the flour or breadcrumbs because I don’t want them to go to waste, you can always add more. I would guess I used about 1/2 cup of flour and 3/4 cup of breadcrumbs
  • Preheat oven to 400

  • Remove the chicken from the fridge and roll in the flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mixture, making sure to shake off excess each time, but coating the whole strip as well. Place onto a well coated baking dish
  • When you have prepared all of the strips, spray them with the cooking spray again. YOU MUST DO THIS, it helps with the baking process and really keeps all of the coating together
  • Bake for 9-10 minutes before flipping and baking for 9-10 minutes more or your strips are cooked through.
  • As always, these taste good reheated in a 225 degree oven.
