Why is it that all the unhealthy foods taste amazing, while the healthy foods taste bland? If the world didn’t want me to eat chicken fingers, why would it make them so tasty?! Well, I’ve got news for you. Not only can healthy food taste even better than the junk (yep, I said it), but we have a way to make chicken fingers healthy, while maintaining that incredible flavor and crunch. You can make these bad boys at home in no time, making them the perfect meal after school, and easy to throw in a container and bring to school for lunch. Your friends will be jealous. This recipe was created by Lauren, our resident expert on all healthy foods, who you can follow at @laus_healthy_life on Instagram. Her feed will correct any misconceptions you might have had about health foods, trust me.
Keep reading below to check out this super simple recipe, and be prepared for these chicken fingers to change your life.
Lauren recommends pairing these chicken tenders with sweet potato fries, and serving them with your favourite dipping sauces. You could also add them to a healthy Caesar salad! The almond flour makes the tenders super filling, while adding fiber and healthy fats to your diet. Bonus!
Try these out at home, but make sure to ask your mom if you need her help purchasing some ingredients from the grocery store, or handling the knife and oven.
