These were AWESOME! They would be okay in cycle 2 & 3. I did eat these on the 2nd to last day of my cycle 1 for the Super Bowl, so I cheated a tiny bit.

Ingredients:
• 2 large chicken breasts
• Rice Chex (these are the only questionable ingredient, with a little sugar in them)
• Sea Salt & Pepper
• Paprika
• Dried Oregano
• Garlic Powder
• Onion Powder

1. Cut chicken breasts into strips & sprinkle strips with sea salt & pepper

2. Heat oven to 450 degrees & spray pan with 100% olive oil spray

3. Crush (about 2 cups) Rice Chex on a large plate. Add sea salt, paprika, dried oregano, garlic powder & onion powder (I like a lot of seasoning, but add as much or little as you like)

4. Dip chicken strips into the crushed Chex & seasoning mix, coat & put directly onto olive oiled pan

5. Bake for about 17 minutes (180 degrees internal temp is perfect)

I dipped them into Frank’s Hot Sauce & they were so yummy!
