We think Chicken Boy would approve the use of Engilsh muffins for sturdy, substantial crumbs, but he probably wouldn't object if you substituted firm, hearty bread. It's not as if he can talk or anything.
4 servings (serving size: about 4 chicken strips)

1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 pound skinned, boned chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch strips
2 cups fresh English muffin breadcrumbs (about 2 muffins)
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Cooking spray


Combine first 6 ingredients in a zip-top plastic bag. Add chicken to bag; seal. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Preheat oven to 375°.

Combine breadcrumbs and cheese in a bowl. Remove chicken from bag and arrange on a sheet of wax paper. Sprinkle chicken evenly with 1 cup breadcrumb mixture.
