Crispy Baked Chicken Strips

2 cups Bite Size Shredded Wheat cereal
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Preheat the oven to 350°. Cut the chicken breast into 3/4 x 2-inch strips. Crush the cereal down enough that it measures just 1 cup. Combine crushed cereal, Parmesan cheese, salt, paprika, garlic powder in a shallow dish and set aside. Combine mayonnaise, honey and mustard in a mixing bowl. Stir chicken strips into mayonnaise mixture; then roll each strip in cereal mixture. Place on a rack in a shallow baking pan. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken strips are cooked through (no pink remaining.) Yields 25 to 30 strips.

This is a good way to use up the crushed cereal and crumbs that are always left in the bottom of the box.

Love At Home

There is beauty all around
When there's love at home.
There is joy in every sound
When there's love at home.

Roses bloom beneath our feet,
All the earth is a garden sweet,
Making life a bliss complete,
When there's love at home.

-- John Hugh McNaughton (1829-1891)
