Uber Healthy Chicken Fingers
A Recipe for Toddlers
Posted by Christen Babb
Sneak extra vitamin-packed vegetables into the everyday chicken finger. We suggest a sweet potato, broccoli or “swacolli” puree, as the mild, sweet flavor complements the chicken. Take pride in serving this dish…they are super healthy and delicious!
¾ – 1 lb. package organic chicken tenderloins
1 cup vegetable puree, thinned out with water
1 cup baby cereal
2 cups panko bread crumbs
Pinch kosher salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice chicken tenderloins into 1-2 inch long strips and set aside. Fill one wide, shallow bowl with baby cereal, another with the vegetable puree, and a third with panko bread crumbs. Dredge chicken in baby cereal, then in vegetable puree and go for a third dredge in the bread crumbs. (The baby cereal serves as a “primer”, so the vegetable puree will stick to the chicken. The panko gives the chicken fingers “crunch”.)
Place chicken fingers on greased cookie sheet (lightly coated with cooking spray).Bake in oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve immediately or freeze in freezer bags to re-heat for another time.
