Chicken Fingers with Honey Sauce

I tried a new "chicken maggot" (as my 3-year old calls them) recipe tonight and it was a hit!  It comes from a healthy cookbook that I love.  Anyways, here is the recipe:

12 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 beaten egg whites
1 Tablespoon honey
2 cups corn flakes, crushed
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup honey
4 teaspoons dijon-style mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1.  Rinse chicken; pat dry with paper towels.  Cut chicken into 3/4 inch wide, 3 inch long strips.  In a small mixing bowl, combine the egg whites and the 1 tablespoon honey.  In a shallow bowl, combine the corn flake crumbs and pepper.  Dip chicken strips into the egg white mixture.  Roll in the crumb mixture to coat.  Place in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake chicken in a 450 degree oven for 11-13 minutes or till no long pink.
2.  For sauce - in a small bowl stir together the 1/4 cup honey, mustard and garlic powder.  (I also added about 1/2 teaspoon poppy-seeds!)  Serve with chicken.

While eating this meal, my daughter said that I was "the bestest cooker at chicken maggots".  Sweet huh.

Wow! This sounds so yummy, and so kid friendly! I'm going to add this recipe to my box, and title it 'Chicken Maggots'. ;-)
