Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers

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

Your rating: None Average: 2.9 (1076 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....

This was very easy to make, my husband - who doesn't ordinarily like much (especially anything healthy) really liked this chicken. It was a little dry, but nothing a little hot sauce didn't fix...plus I probably over did the chicken on my own.

my husband liked them!

Does anybody know if egg whites instead instead of whole eggs are used for health reasons or because the outcome will be influenced?

Absolutely Delicious.

I doubled the recipe and I didn't use blender, just chopped my silvered almonds and added to the dry ingredients without oil. I only used about 2 egg whites with a doubled recipe. Put them on a cooling rack sprayed with oil then sprayed the tops of my tenders and slid a cookie sheet under them for drips. 25 minutes in convect oven was perfect. I dipped mine in a little ranch dressing & my husband drizzled some honey on his. I also cooked the grilled green beans and had roasted cauliflower with Parmesan sprinkled on top. Delicious meal.

Crisp, easy, taste great
