Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers

August/September 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (1109 votes)

Instead of batter-dipped, deep-fried nuggets, we coat chicken tenders in a seasoned almond and whole-wheat flour crust and then oven-fry them to perfection. With half the fat of standard breaded chicken tenders, you can enjoy to your (healthy) heart's content.

Best Chicken Finger Recipe

This recipe is amazing! I started making these a couple years ago in college when I was on a tight budget with not a lot of time, but still wanted to eat healthy. These are amazing and super easy! 100% recommend!

These will for sure be a regular meal for me. All that protein, practically no fat, AND delicious?? Are you kidding!?! Your kids will love these, your man will love these, and you will looooove these.

Super quick and easy!

I made this last night for dinner, and love them. Even my 7 year old ate it up! Quick Tip: the batter doesn't need to combine with the oil, it just needs to be like bread crumbs, then the egg whites will make them stick to the chicken. That being said, I added a little bit more oil before realizing I didn't need too. I bought fresh chicken breast tenderloin for this and it turned out amazing. I made 8 pieces, but had to whip together a little bit more of the almond crumbs. Also, I only used about half of the egg. Don't crack all 4 at the beginning! start with two, and add more if needed. The little ones thought it was just chicken tenders and ate it with a little ketchup. I served them with broccoli, chopped carrots, and a salad. Over all, this is a new "go to" dinner for my family that the whole family LOVES.

I just made your Almond-crusted Chicken Fingers recipe. I am so excited, because my two sons (who are the pickiest eaters!) and my husband absolutely LOVED it!!! They literally raved over it throughout the entire meal! Thank you so much!! I can't wait to try more of your recipes! I also appreciated the tip about putting the chicken on a rack to avoid soggy chicken. I will use this tip whenever I want crispy oven-baked chicken!

If you place the chicken on a rack then on top of a dip baking sheet then it will bake evenly from all sides without sogging from the botom
