Toddler Tuesday – Chia Chicken Strips

I’m usually all for frozen nuggets from the freezer section at the grocery store for Matthew, but once I found this recipe on Pinterest from Savvy Mom I knew I had to give them a try. I’ve never had chia seeds before so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but boy were these chicken strips tasty. I had to substitute a few ingredients because I didn’t have everything listed and they still came out great! The yogurt and mustard marinade keeps the chicken so moist that even when I reheated them the next day they were just as good.

Toddler Tuesday – Chia Chicken Strips


  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 (6oz) containers of plain yogurt
  • 2 TBS grainy mustard
  • 2 C italian bread crumbs
  • 2 TSP garlic pepper
  • 2 TSP kosher salt


  1. Slice each boneless skinless chicken breast into strips
  2. Combine the yogurt and mustard into a bowl and dip each chicken strip into it laying them on a baking dish to marinade for 45 minutes
  3. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees
  4. Once the chicken is done marinading dip each strip into the breadcrumb, salt and garlic pepper mixture coating all sides
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until cooked through and golden brown
