Helpful hints

  • Cut chicken strips about the same size for even cooking. For convenience you can purchase chicken pre-cut into strips. They are usually labeled as chicken fingers, chicken strips or chicken tenders.
  • Panko bread crumbs are Japanese-style bread crumbs made from white bread without the crust and processed into flakes instead of crumbs. Panko absorbs less fat and is lower in sodium compared to standard bread crumbs.
  • Compare stir-fry sauce brands and choose the one lowest in sodium. You can substitute teriyaki sauce if stir-fry sauce is unavailable, but sodium content may be higher.
  • Adjust the portion if you need more or less protein.
