I’m going to show you how to make baked chicken strips, that you can cook in bulk, and then when you need it, take it with you on the go.

We’ll also throw in a side of vitamins, fiber, and of course healthy fat.

Besides being simple to make, one of the great things about this high protein snack is it contains all whole ingredients and tastes great.

Good luck finding that at a fast food restaurant or supermarket.

Here’s the deal with eating on the go

I don’t recommend buying most of the packaged, ready to eat snack products at the supermarket.

For the most part, the majority of these packaged snacks tend to be products, not food.

Therefore, if you want healthy on the go snacks, most of the time I recommend you cook real, healthy foods in bulk.

That way, you can quickly put the leftovers in Tupperware, and take them with you, on the go.

Healthy food doesn’t need to mean bland food

Remember, when you’re Living Lean it doesn’t mean you have to eat boring and bland foods.

Live Leaners spice it up with delicious and healthy seasonings.

We’ll be adding a chicken spice seasoning will make your baked chicken strips taste so good.

Another time saving hack is to make this spice seasoning mixture in bulk, so you can set it aside, then use it again the next time you make these baked chicken strips.

So what are we waiting for?

Here are the ingredients and instructions on how to cook this on the go healthy high protein snack.

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 375F.
  2. Cut a 6oz chicken breast into thin strips, then add to a baking sheet lined with tin foil.
  3. In a small mixing dish, add 2 tbsp of garlic powder, 1 tbsp of dried oregano, 1 tsp of paprika for a little bit of spice, and black pepper to taste. Add a lid on the mixing dish and shake it up.
  4. Spread just enough of the spice seasoning on top of the chicken strips. Then flip the chicken and dash the other side. If you're only preparing one 6oz serving of chicken, do not use all of the spice seasoning. Use just enough to add flavor, then store the rest.
  5. Add the chicken strips to the oven, and depending on how thin you sliced them, bake for 10-15 minutes. The thinner your chicken, the less time it will take to bake. Our chicken strips took 10 minutes to cook throughly.
  6. After the timer is up, remove the baking sheet from the oven and add 6oz of chicken strips to some Tupperware, so you can bring it with you on the go.
  7. Lastly, grab an apple for some vitamins and fiber, and put 1/2 of an avocado in a Tupperware, or ziplock bag, for some healthy monounsaturated fat.

Recipe Notes:

  • if you want to prepare this recipe in bulk, slice up multiple chicken breasts.
  • I prefer to slice my chicken strips thinly, especially when I’m eating on the go. That way I can eat it with my fingers, rather than eating a big chicken breast. Plus, this will also reduce the amount of time it takes to cook.
  • if you’re only preparing one 6oz serving of chicken breast, do not use all of the spice seasoning. Simply store the rest of the spice seasoning in the mixing dish, and use it the next time you’re cooking in bulk.

10 minutes, that’s it

Healthy High Protein Snack

That’s how long it took to make these baked chicken strips.

They look good, they smell good, now it’s time to give them a taste.

Damn that’s good!

If you cooked in bulk, add the leftover chicken strips to another piece of Tupperware, and store it in the fridge.

Also, if you have leftover spice seasoning, store it in the cabinet for the next time you need it.

There you have it.

That is an example of a quick and easy, on the go healthy high protein snack idea that is comprised of all whole foods.
