If you haven’t noticed yet, my family eats a lot of chicken. There are several reasons for this, such as organic chicken is cheaper and easier to find than most other meats….but the main reason being that i just love chicken. I have always loved chicken, as a matter of fact. When I was a little girl, no matter what restaurant we went to, I always ordered chicken fingers. Ihop? Chicken fingers. Longhorns? Chicken fingers. Chinese? Cat fingers. Wait, what?
There was a short period of my childhood that I proclaimed to be a vegetarian. I just love animals so much, and it broke my little heart to eat them. But even then….I still ate chicken fingers. 🙂
This is my all time favorite chicken finger recipe. It is super easy, super tasty, and super healthy!
