Grown Up Chicken Strips

I really enjoy making grown up versions of some of Sam's favorite meals.  This is one of our favorites.  It's really easy and quick and every body is happy when this meal is on the menu!

Parmesan Chicken Strips with Creamy Balsamic Dipping Sauce

1 package chicken tenders or 1 large chicken breast sliced into tenders
1 1/2 cups Homemade Bread Crumbs
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
1 cup milk

Creamy Balsamic Dipping Sauce:
3 tbs balsamic vinegar
1 clove minced garlic
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
salt and pepper
1/2 - 1 tbs mayonnaise

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Place chicken strips in milk and soak for up to 30 minutes.  Mix Homemade Bread Crumbs , Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and salt and pepper together in a small bowl in preparation for breading.

Meanwhile combine all ingredients for the dipping sauce and set aside.  Grease or use parchment paper to cover a rimmed baking sheet.

Remove chicken from the milk and dredge chicken strips in bread crumb mixture to coat, place on baking sheet when done.

Place in preheated oven and bake 15-20 minutes until browned.  Serve with Creamy Balsamic Dipping Sauce and a glass of wine!
