These are a classic! Who doesn’t love chicken fingers and fries!? I wanted to put a healthier spin on a classic and these came out so good! Definitely a great meal if you have kiddos--they won’t even notice the difference ;) I decided to use one of my favorite boxes of crackers (Simple Mills--love all the flavors) and use that as the “breading” for the chicken fingers. You could use any cracker here, but I definitely recommend these! This meal is perfect for a lunch or dinner. The whole family will love it! And it will satisfy that chicken finger craving that I am sure you get.
