Pita Crusted Chicken

This is a very family friendly recipe that is frequently requested in my house. To make the coating blend one whole wheat pita into crumbs. Add to the crumbs, 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Cut 2 large chicken breasts into large strips. Roll the strips in whole wheat flour, then dip into egg whites and finally coat with pita mixture. In a large skillet heat 1 TB olive oil over med-high heat and brown chicken strips on both sides. Place on cooking sheet and place in 350 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes.

3 oz chicken (3 blocks protein)
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce (1 blocks carbs)
2 cups mixed green salad with kidney beans, pecans, crushed croutons and olive oil dressing (2 blocks carbs/ 3 blocks fat) Post thoughts to comments.
