Baked Cajun Chicken Strips

This recipe for Baked Cajun Chicken Strips is one of our favorite ways to make chicken. These are great for supper or lunch. They are also one of our favorite picnic dishes. I love to have these made up ahead of time and be able to grab them for a picnic or for some road trip food.

Use my Homemade Cajun Spice Mix for a gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free dish. Many ready-made spice mixes contain ingredients that might be allergens.

I use mayonnaise on the chicken strips to help them stay moist and tender. If you prefer, you can make your own mayonnaise from this recipe from Deep Roots at Home.

Trim Healthy Mamas these strips are an FP.

  1. Ok this is what I need to know this meal is it or do you have a salad with it? I need to have someone help with this. Not sure how to put all the meals together in order to lose weight. Right now I’m just eating two meals a day and limiting carbs and sugars.

    Thank You,

      Hi Gayle, I usually have some vegetables with these chicken strips. You could have a salad if you like. Have you been able to read the Trim Healthy Mama Plan book yet? It explains exactly how to put the meals together and the science behind them. There are also facebook groups that are specifically for THM. That’s how I learned, by reading and re-reading the book and learning from others in the facebook groups. The THM Beginners group would be a great group to join.
      You can do it!

    These tenders were great! I’ve been following some of the THM, not so much as the abbreviations but just the meals that keeps getting shared all around the internet. I will be making these again, that is for sure! I broke this recipe down to just feed two people and it was perfect! I served this with green beans and a ceaser salad. Yum!

  5. Thank you for this recipe. This is my first day on THM and this is my first recipe. 🙂 I’ll be visiting you often.
