Healthy Chicken Fingers

One of my favourite things about having a work-life balance is that I have more time to cook healthy and interesting meals. This one is no exception. Coated in almonds, chia seeds, flax seeds and oats, you can’t really go wrong with this one.

My breading ingredients.For the breading, take the ingredients and blend them in the food processor with some seasoning salt. Lay out in a bowl or a large plate.

Next, slice the chicken into strips and crack an egg into another plate. Whisk the egg and add a drop or two of lime juice.

First, dredge the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, then into the breading. Lay out on a greased baking sheet.

Bake at 350 until strips are golden and brown.

Serve with a side of honey mustard as your dipping sauce. Enjoy!
