Chicken Fingers with Sweet Potato Wedges

A healthier take on chicken fingers.

Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean living without having fun with what you eat.

Substituting brown rice or almond flour makes this a gluten free treat that won’t leave you with the tummy ache that usually comes with eating those heavy fried foods and you’ll get far more nutrition out of this indulgence!

 

Ingredients

Breading:

  • 1/3 cup brown rice flour (or almond flour for a low carb breading)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (preferably Redmond Real Salt)
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper (you could also add italian seasoning, garlic, and / or chipotle for smoky flavor are all options)
  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast or pre-cut chicken strips.
  • 1 tablespoon grapeseed oil or cold pressed coconut oil (unrefined cold pressed olive oil if in a pinch)

Directions

  1. Combine all dry ingredients and whisk together to make your breading.
  2. Cut chicken into small strips if they aren’t already.
  3. Heat oil in a large non stick skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add chicken, working in small batches if necessary, and cook until lightly browned, about 3 minutes per side.
  5. Serve immediately.
