Crispy Baked Chicken Strips

Quick and easy homemade baked chicken strips recipe. We usually serve this with homemade mac and cheese. They're way better than store-bought chicken strips and don't take any longer since you have to wait for the oven to preheat anyway.

2 servings


  • cooking spray

  • 1 large egg, beaten

  • 2 cups crushed crackers

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder

  • 2 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, cut crosswise into 1-inch-wide strips


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

  2. Place egg in a bowl. Mix crushed crackers, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and chili powder together in a second bowl.

  3. Dip chicken strips into beaten egg, then coat with cracker mixture; place on the prepared baking sheet.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until crispy on the outside and lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can use bread crumbs in place of crushed crackers, and kosher salt for regular salt.
