Chicken breasts are the leanest piece of chicken you can use. Choose boneless and skinless for the absolute healthiest choice. If you buy frozen breasts, defrost them in the microwave before coating and baking. To make chicken fingers, cut each breast lengthwise into thirds. For larger pieces, cut each whole breast into half to make prep easier and the cook time faster. You can also purchase chicken breast tenderloins, which are a great option for "fried" chicken strips. They cook up faster than chicken breast, and are very moist.
