Ready for a healthified kids meal? Like is an understatement as to how much my one year old loved this meal. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it too. You can’t beat a journey back to childhood meals with chicken fingers! 🙂
The chicken was nice and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Pair it with tons of veggies for a well balanced meal! And if you’re really ready to hide some veggies, I’d suggest this healthified mac and cheese. 🙂
A little side note. My husband just got back from a trip to San Francisco (SO JEALOUS), but while he was gone my sister, Margaret, and I went crazy-pyscho organizing in our new house. I can’t wait to get everything cleaned up and perfected and share it with you!
You see, while my husband was gone, he received a pile of packages! Someone got caught with a little too much online shopping. 😉 Luckily, we have Amazon Prime and get free two day shipping. Woot! Anyone else have a prime account? Isn’t it awesome! The free streaming movies rocks, too.
Anyway, if you haven’t heard or gotten Amazon Prime, you may want to give it a go with their 30 day free trial. It’s rockin’. Hello, deals on diapers and bulk groceries! 🙂

These look so scrumptious, Caroline! Love that you used buttermilk to keep the chicken tender and egg whites for an even crispier coating! Yum yum.
I am in love with baked chicken tenders too! For myself though… 😉 Annnnd I dont serve it with veggies haha! You are so much better than me! I really want to try this version! The buttermilk and egg white mix sounds awesome!
These look so good! I love baked chicken tenders! That crunch is just the best. And we LOVE our Amazon Prime account! We’ve had it for 3 years now and we use it all the time. That two-day shipping has been a major lifesaver for last minute birthday gifts!
Mmm… I want a bite.
