Faux fried night - Fried chicken and zucchini - 5.5 points

This is a delicious alternative to fried chicken. It won't have the oily consistency, but it tastes great and the texture is crunchy. I eyeballed the seasonings, but I've given approximate amounts below. You can actually stick your finger in the flour before adding the cornflakes and adjust the seasoning to taste. 
Sorry the pic is so bad. I forgot to arrange them and take a pic until the hubby and I were almost done eating.

1 zucchini - 0
5 chicken - 10
1/2 cup greek yogurt - 1.5
1 tsp garlic -0
2 tsp onion powder -0
2tsp garlic powder - 0
2 tsp red pepper -0
1 cup cornflakes (very well crushed)- 3
2/3 cup flour - 8
1 spray Pam - 0 points

4 servings - 5.5 points

Cook at 360 degrees.
Put yogurt and fresh garlic on a plate and mix well. On a second plate, mix flour, corn flakes, and spices. Cut zucchini in strips. Dip in yogurt, then in flour mix. Line on cookie sheet. Cut chicken tenderloins in chunks. Dredge in yogurt, then flour, and place on cookie sheet.
Cook for 30-33 minutes until chicken is cooked through.
