Parmesan Crusted Chicken

I use boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into large strips for this recipe because it keeps the chicken moist. For the coating I mix 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup whole wheat bread crumbs (it is easier to make your own in your blender), 1 tbl garlic powder, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken strips in a light dusting of whole wheat flour first and egg, then lightly coat with Parmesan mixture. Heat 2 tbl light olive oil in a pan over med high heat and cook chicken just long enough to crisp the outside. Place chicken on a baking sheet and cook at 350 degrees for 20 -25 minutes or until cooked throughout.
