Kids adore chicken fingers and nuggets, but the deep-fried versions are terribly unhealthy.  The pre-made options that you grab in the grocery store may be easy, but the expense and lack of nutrition in most brands makes this quick dinner a poor choice.  Why not make a huge, heart-healthy batch yourself and freeze half, ensuring that you always have a quick and healthy option available?

I did this on a virtual cooking club with my son’s class and the kids loved learning how to dredge! You can also try a tempura batter, like the one I saw as a McDonald’s Mom as they made the McNuggets. The Spruce Eats has a great beer-battered one as well.

Serves 4; about 3 ounces chicken and 1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons dipping sauce per serving
