This meal is quick, easy, low-maintenance, and most of the ingredients can be kept in the pantry all the time, so you always have something to make for dinner. Pair with steamed broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes for an all American feast.


Are you making this? 
2 parts Bisquick Mix
1 part bread crumbs; may use any brand, any flavor
1 tablespoon garlic powder; (up to 2)
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika; smoked or regular
2 tablespoons dried Italian herb blend; make your own using basil, oregano, thyme
1 tablespoon salt; kosher or table salt
1/4 teaspoon Anise; (opt.)
sugar; to taste; for two cups of mix, I use about 1/4 cup of sugar
1 pound chicken breast; to coat more chicken, make more mix!
canola oil; enough to coat chicken pieces

Original recipe makes 6



Start by slicing the chicken to the desired size (about 2 to 3 inch strips, 1/2 inch thick). Make sure the pieces are all about the same size so that the cooking time will be equal.

Cover one baking sheet with aluminum foil, and place a cooling rack on top of the baking sheet. You will be placing your chicken pieces on this once they've been coated in the bisquick mix. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Drizzle just enough canola/vegetable oil to coat the sliced chicken, making sure that every piece is evenly coated.

In a separate bowl, mix bisquick, bread crumbs, and seasonings until well blended. Now you're ready to begin coating the chicken in the mixture. Taking about 5 pieces of chicken at a time, place the chicken in the bread crumb/bisquick mixture and toss lightly with a fork until well coated. Lay the chicken strips on the cooling rack. If you like your chicken to be a bit crunchier, place the strips further apart; for softer breading, don't leave as much space. Once you've coated all the chicken and placed it on the cookie sheet/cooling rack, place chicken in oven and set the timer for 25 minutes.

When the timer goes off, take the chicken out, and use a thermometer to make sure the internal temperature is between 150-160 degrees. You only need to test a few pieces as long as your pieces are about the same size.

All that's left is to eat and enjoy!

None of the measurements need to be exact; the beauty of this recipe is that it can be adapted to suit many taste buds, as well as the ingredients in your pantry! Feel free to swap out the herbs and spices, making sure that you use sugar and salt to taste. If you don't have Bisquick, flower will do, but avoid substituting the canola/vegetable oil for olive oil. [I posted this recipe.]
