This is from Dana Carpender cookbk. To quote her: it's hot, spicy, and italian. :devil: I sometimes leave off the hot sauce and eat like ckn strips. I am listing the recipe with my tweaks.

3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breast - cut into 1 inch fingers - I make some long ones
1 1/2 C cheap parmesan cheese - the powder in a can kind (recipe uses 1 C but it needed more)
2 tbs dried parsley
1 tbs dried oregano
2 tsp dried paprika
I omit the 1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 C EVOO
6 cloves garlic, minced (I run em through the mini blender with the EVOO)
1 C hot sauce - I just leave it on the side - recipe says to pour over the cooked chicken - DH doesn't like hot hot, so he dunks as he wants

Mix garlic/EVOO. I then throw all the chicken into it and squish around until coated (sometimes the night before). Mix cheese and spices in bowl. Dip chicken in cheese mix, bake at 350. Mine take about 40 mins - YMMV.

Recipe says to put em on a platter and pour the hot sauce over them. I don't.

Recipe also says about 2 net carbs per each of the 6 servings done without my tweaks. We just divy the strips up into about 6 servings to figure it out. Good 2nd day with a salad.

Looks good will have to try it - I need to go thru Dana's books and set up some menus - and shopping lists to make the holiday season easier ...
