Chicken strips are great for children with their little hands. Besides, who doesn’t like to eat with their hands? Since you are making them from scratch you can cut them to whatever size you like. If you want nuggets, just cut them in nugget shapes instead of strips. You can find many of the ingredients in our diabetic-friendly Pantry.

Baking on a baking sheet vs a wire rack.

Whether you use a baking sheet without a wire rack or one with a wire rack, the taste of the chicken will be the same. The crispiness is where you will notice the difference.

Cooking on a wire rack will allow the air to circulate the chicken, resulting in a crispier chicken strip, when it is finished baking.

When you take the chicken out of the oven, it also cools faster. This means that the chicken does not continue to cook as long as it does if it were sitting directly on the pan.

I have found that a sheet pan with a sturdy wire rack works best when using the oven method. Choose a wire rack that has a grid as opposed to a lengthwise wire surface, as it is more versatile when making other similar recipes.

Another great use for the sheet pan and wire rack combination is for broiling and also for draining greasy food. I use mine for bacon as well. I line the bottom with foil and cook the bacon on it in the oven and when I am done, I can just wait for the bacon grease to solidify and throw it all away. Such an easy cleanup!
