Buttermilk Oven-Fried Chicken

This is a healthy way to prepare the always-famous chicken strips. Dipping chicken in egg whites allows the cornflake coating to adhere to the meat and also creates a crispy crust: Just the way I like it! I found this in a magazine the other day, and I am looking forward to trying it! Preparation time includes chill time.
