Low Fat Chicken Salad Recipes

 

Oven Baked Chicken Strip Salad

This is one of my mom’s favorite chicken salad recipes that I want to share with you. The chicken is coated with crushed cereal crumbs but it’s baked in the oven instead of fried in keeping with low fat cooking.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 egg white beaten
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 2/12 cups of corn flakes crushed fine
  • romaine lettuce torn up
  • 1/4 cup fat free or low fat raspberry or other flavored vinaigrette
  • 1 pear cut in cubes
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • couple tbsps. of water
  • cooking spray
  • seasoned salt to taste

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 325F

2. Cut chicken into strips and in a shallow bowl stir the egg white and water together.

3. Spread the crushed cereal and pepper and seasoned salt onto a plate. Dip chicken into egg whites to coat both sides and then press the chicken or roll it in the crushed cereal to coat the chicken all around.

4. Place on baking sheet in single layer. Be sure to line the baking sheet with tin foil first and spray the foil with cooking spray to prevent sticking.

5. Spray a little cooking spray lightly over the chicken.

6. Bake for 20 minutes or so until chicken is no longer pink.

7. Toss the romaine lettuce and vinaigrette together and put a few handfuls on serving plates. Place the hot chicken on top of the salad and sprinkle with the pear and nuts.  Serve.
