Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers

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

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (1099 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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....

Delicious. These are a hit with my family. Instead of tenders, I just cut up chicken breasts into strips.

Perfect replacement for fried chicken fingers. You get the health benefits of the almonds, but it also satisfies that craving for fried food. Excellent recipe for kids and toddlers! We also used chicken breasts cut into smaller strips and they were great.

This is a very tasty recipe! Healthy too! I did have a problem after I breaded the other half of the chicken. The nut/flour mixture became to gooey and would not stay on the chicken. I think next time I will divide the nut/flour mixture into 2 bowls to solve this problem. I also used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and just cut them into 4-5 smaller pieces instead of using chicken tenders. Came out moist, tasty and delicious.
