Delicious tasting chicken fingers with the almond coating giving a nice nutty crunch and flavour. I served with a green salad, potato salad and crispy bread rolls. Thanks Dorothy!
WOW! This recipe is awesome. I love it. I am trying to eat healthier and I am always looking for ways to liven up my meals. Of course, I never make anything exactly as the directions called for I always personalize it. Since I am on a low carb eating plan, I used soy flour instead of regular flour and almond milk in place of skim milk. I also seasons the chicken with Adobo seasoning (the kind you buy at the store, I think every piece of meat I cook I put it adobo on it) and a little onion powder - just personal preference. Besides that, I followed recipe like it is and man was I pleased. This will be a regular in my house for now on. Thanks for sharing - ;)
Yum! Simple to put together and tasted great. I did do it all in the oven like another reviewer. Just a few sprays of butter flavor baking spray. Came out great!Made for PARTY 09
