A Healthier Take On Chicken Fingers

Who doesn't love chicken fingers?  For my family, it's an ultimate favorite!  What if you could prepare them in a healthier way, that doesn't sacrifice taste.  Well, you can!  Check out this wonderful recipe I found/tried on Weight Watchers online!  It's sure to be a family hit!

Chicken Fingers w/Ranch Dip & Homemade Seasoned Fries
Serving Size: 4 (9 Points Per Serving, Points Plus System)

Ingredients

  • olive oil cooking spray
  • 1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard 
  • 2 1/2 packets of uncooked instant oatmeal
  • 2 tsp. garlic herb seasoning, preferably salt-free
  • 1/2 tsp. table salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 large potatoes, russet, peeled, cut into 1/2 inch thick fries
  • 1 tbsp. creole seasoning (can use "all seasons" as a substitution)
  • 1/2 cup fat-free ranch salad dressing

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Coat a large baking sheet with olive oil cooking spray. 
  • Coat chicken strips with mustard.  Combine oats, garlic herb, salt and pepper in a shallow dish.  Dip chicken strips into oat mixture and turn to coat; place on prepared pan.
  • Lightly coat potatoes with olive oil spray and sprinkle with "all seasons" seasoning.  Arrange potatoes around chicken on pan.  
  • Bake, flipping once, until chicken is cooked through and both chicken & fries are tender and golden brown (about 30 minutes).
  • Serve chicken & potatoes with dressing on the side. 
  • Yields about 3 ounces of chicken, 1/2  a potato and 2 tablespoons of dressing per serving.

This recipe is super easy and delicious!  The "oat mixture" would also work great on homemade onion rings (baked of course)!

Have any healthy, tasty recipes?  I would love to hear from you!


Warm Weekend Wishes,
