DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the chicken breast into strips (you'll wash them in a later step). Thicker strips will take a bit longer to bake.
  • Put the chicken strips into a bowl and mix in 1/2 cup of lemon juice. With your hands, really mix the chicken with the lemon juice and allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Wash the chicken strips well, removing any membranes or fatty bits. Remove as much of the excess water and dry the strips.
  • Put the chicken into a clean bowl and sprinkle with lemon juice and add the yogurt and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Mix well and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and prepare a baking sheet by spraying with cooking spray.
  • Bread the chicken strips by dredging them in the crushed crackers or cornflake crumbs.
  • Place the strips onto the baking pan and sprinkle lightly with the melted butter.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until cooked through. Larger pieces might take longer to cook, smaller pieces might take less time.
