Take Out Meals at Home: Fried Organic Chicken Fingers

 
 
At restaurants my kiddo’s eyes look longingly at chicken fingers as they are dunked in creamy honey mustard by children at nearby tables.   We have gotten to the point now where they look at the menu and know not to even ask.   I try to keep the kiddos away from chickens on steroids, consequently nine times out of ten chicken fingers in restaurants are off limits.  So the kiddos don’t have to drool over others chicken fingers I have had to devise a chicken finger recipe that could rival any restaurants.  Thus, my organic chicken fingers.
We love this recipe on a Saturday night.  Not only do we get to have healthier chicken but I can avoid having to carry around the square shaped ‘your table is ready’ buzzer while I listen to three whiny kids ask me fifteen times has it buzzed yet and complain they are about to die of hunger.
 

Happy Weekend Mama’s!

If using organic chicken breasts cut into strips. [I like using chicken breasts when possible because I can get more bang for my buck and with a family of five eating organic chicken that counts for a lot – if you know what I mean.]

I like to flour all of my chicken strips at one time.  That way while the oil is nice and hot I can keep the frying going.

Remove to a wire rack with paper towel lined sheet tray underneath.  So your nice chicken strips will stay crispy!
