Ingredients

For the baked seasoned chicken strips

  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into about 4 to 5 strips each
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp ground dry oregano
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 2 eggs

For the Easy Lime Salsa

  • 3 large fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 1 small jalapeño pepper, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ red pepper, diced
  • ½ green pepper
  • Juice of one lime
  • Zest of one lime finely chopped
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Salt and pepper to season

Instructions

  1. Sift together the flour, salt, pepper, cumin, chill powder and oregano.
  2. Make an egg wash my whisking together the water and eggs.
  3. Dip the chicken strips in the egg wash before dipping them in the flour mixture to coat. Place on a lightly oiled, preheated baking sheet.
  4. Spray a little oil over the top of the chicken pieces too. Bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes, turning the pieces once about half way through the cooking time.
  5. Serve on a mixed salad topped with Easy Lime Salsa.

To prepare the Easy Lime Salsa

  1. Combine all ingredients, tossing together well. Cover in a glass bowl and store in the refrigerator. Make at least an hour in advance of serving, stirring occasionally.
  2. This is a good basic recipe that you can add other things to if you prefer. I have often added roasted corn, roasted peppers, chopped avocado and even pineapple.
