My husband has been craaaaaaving chicken strips, but because we no longer eat fast food, he thought he was out of luck. I tried this recipe for him last night, and we both LOVED it. To save on calories, we used Smart Balance Light instead of butter, and because we didn't have any chicken seasoning, I made my own using a mixture of garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, salt and a dash of cayenne pepper. I also gave them a very light coating with cooking spray before popping them in the oven, but those were the only changes. They came out golden brown, crispy and juicy, much like the chicken tenders I used to enjoy at Claim Jumper's! YUM!!! My only complaint was that the serving-sizes were a bit small--I used a pound and a third of chicken tenders (and upped the other ingredients by a third to compensate), which worked out to approximately four medium tenders per serving. You really need a hearty side-dish to make up for the small-ish amount of chicken per person.
