Baked Chili Red Chicken Strips

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Montana Heart Song

Bake two chicken breasts, cut in strips and make this batter to bake them in oven. Great crowd pleaser. I was able to get 18 chicken strips from two large chicken breasts. Ranch, Picante, ketchup or Sweet & Sour dips can be served. Chicken can be cooked ahead, cut and cooled, ready for the batter.

These turned out okay & could be better if the recipe described HOW TO batter the strips. The batter was good, the chicken was good, but the batter didn't seem to bake right on the chicken. We found that we liked this dipped in mustard. Thanks for sharing-made for Bargain Basement Tag.
