Recipe Ingredients for Dijon, Saltine and Wheat Germ Crusted Chicken Fingers

12 oz. boneless skinless chicken breast
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/2 cup yogurt
25 saltine crackers
1 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted

Recipe Directions for Dijon, Saltine and Wheat Germ Crusted Chicken Fingers

  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

  2. Cut the chicken breasts on the diagonal into wide flat strips and season with salt, to taste. In a large bowl, combine the Dijon and the yogurt, toss in the chicken and stir to coat evenly.

  3. Pulse, pulse, pulse the crackers in a food processor until they look like fine crumbs. Add the wheat germ and toasted almonds and pulse until it is a homogeneous mixture. Put this mixture into a wide flat dish. Roll the marinated chicken in this mixture, 1 piece at a time, pressing the cracker/wheat germ mixture to evenly crust each piece. Lay the prepared chicken onto a sheet tray fitted with a rack. Baking the chicken on a rack will allow the air to circulate around the chicken to cook it evenly and make it crispy.

  4. Bake the chicken in the preheated oven until the chicken is cooked through but not dry, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oven to a serving platter.
