STEP 3: 
Broil
Preheat your oven to broil. Line a baking sheet with foil and lightly coat with cooking spray. Arrange the strips on the sheet and lightly spray again. Broil the chicken strips until golden brown and crispy, about 10 to 15 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. The chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F.
