It’s rare you’ll find us recommending “breading” anything, but we’ll make an exception for chicken fingers.

Of course we use whole wheat breadcrumbs instead of the white bread variety, and then we bake the chicken strips instead of frying them.

The result is a much healthier version than grabbing KFC’s tenders, and it’s an easy source of protein everyone of all ages will love.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Chicken is America’s go-to lean protein, and we can’t argue with its versatility. This is one of the simplest ways to enjoy it, by slightly upgrading a fast food favorite. (Tip: Buy organic chicken if possible, to make it even more nutritious.)
