Healthy Chicken Fingers Recipe

Easy Grain Free Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard

Chicken fingers are a kid (and adult) favorite, at least at our house. As with all of our favorite foods, I’ve found healthier alternatives to the traditional versions as we’ve adopted a healthier diet.

This particular recipe uses almond flour to create a grain-free, gluten-free chicken tender that tastes even better than “regular” versions (at least in my opinion). The honey mustard sauce is a simple addition loaded with brain healthy good fats. These are great on their own or topping a salad with some pecans and goat cheese (my favorite).

If your family likes chicken fingers, give this healthier recipe a try! My kids love to dip these in homemade honey mustard sauce.
